Hello...my name is ***** ***** I am 62 female of course. I have had ongoing constipation problems for years but more so ini the last 18 mths having been put on tragic for pain. I have osteoporosis and osteoarthritis and my back is fractured and crushed T10 and spondylitis has developed. I am no longer on any painkillers and no medication whatsoever.

oops. Constipated so bad the bulge at the anus has the lining coming thru. Not a thing will pass.in desperation about one and half hours ago i took one prepcol used for colonist onus etc. had one on hand. Now I am so bloate and tight and stiff and nothing is shifting. I find every position uncomfortable. I really don't want to go to the hospital. I'll wait till another 3 or 4 hours and see if that stuff works. I also have candid albicans and taking probiotics and a concoction of supplements to go with it. I als have peripheral neuopathy and the dumbness in my feet and legs is worse now. My back is killing me. I'm on nothing for the legs. Have tried lyrics, allergic. Canta even find a decent GP who will take the time to sort me out and respond appropriately. Thank you..cheers

What has been tried for the constipation beyond the enemas?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Moviolas, but that bloats me up and when I do go it's a skirt of liquid full stop. Tried coloxyl with and without senna, used to work not now not even 8 at night. Bios lax used to work not now. I chew up a big spoon full of nutrilax of a night and even that doesn't work anymore. Last resort is always enema but that doesn't work now either. I'm the size of a house from diaphragm to pelvis and normal everywhere else. So uncomfortable. Also tried lactose solutions but that just fills me with colic and no other affect.a about 4 hours ago I did the propicol prep for a colonoscopy and now Ai just have a bigger bloating problem and it just runs out in tiny amounts enough to soil everything. Still nothing substantial. My kidneys are aching now.
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 3 months ago.

I assume that you mean that you tried lactulose, rather than lactose.

For someone with severe constipation that is unresponsive to fiber and stool softeners, then the usual management would be with propylene glycol or lactulose. One of the advantages of lactulose is that the dose can be gradually increased until the constipation is resolved, but it may need to be a very gradual increase to limit side effects. For someone with opioid induced constipation, another option that may help is to use Relistor.

Thank you. Please tell me what is Relistor, I e never heard of it. What does it do and what are the brand names, can I get it over the counter or do I need a script? Also I don't know what propylene glycol is. Brand name or something would help. And yes I did men lactulose it was. Misprint sorry, I tried Actifed syrup. It makes me swell and pass wind but nothing else unfortunately. I'm getting very very desperate here, can you get back to me soon. Thanking you
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 3 months ago.

Relistor is the brand name. It contains meethylnatrexone. It is only available by prescription.

A common brand name for propylene glycol is Miralax, which is available over the counter.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Thank you. Is this meethynatresone take by mouth? Suppository, enema ? And is Miralax a fruit ease inform me so I understand what I'm looking for. Thanking you
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 3 months ago.

Yes, the Relistor is taken by mouth.

As for the Miralax, I am not sure what you mean by a "fruit ease", but it is available as a liquid formulation or as a powder that can be mixed with your liquid of choice.
