Customer Question
The issue that I've...

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?

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?

Can my regular Dr. help me with this or do I go to a gastroenterologist

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
