Customer Question

The issue that I've had is that My regular M.D. said I had feces all up in my intestine. I've taken Miralax and another laxative from 1 to 2 months and some of this cleared up but this last bit is still in my bowel or intestine because I am still having pain. What can I do about this?
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: Can my regular Dr. help me with this or do I go to a gastroenterologist
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
