Customer Question
I had lithotripsy and...

I had lithotripsy and uretral stent placed on Friday. Since yesterday I have felt like I must have a BM with constant pressure from my rectum with the urge to push but nothing happens. I have taken Miralax...is a glycerin suppository safe?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Any other symptoms?

Since yesterday afternoon. No other symotoms at all. Just very uncomfortable rectal pressure

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am a type 2 diabetic with IBS and have had this surgery in Feb as well with no problems

Hello I'm Dr Chip

A glycerin suppository is fine but i would also suggest a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day and Omega 3 fatty acid supplements

Please let me know if you need any more information

Should I be concerned if I have no results from the suppository?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 months ago

No but if you don't have a bowel movement within the next two days you need to let your doctor know so he can give you something like CoLytely to clean you out

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.
