I desperately need some help! I started with constipation 5 months ago. I've been prescribed several different laxatives, I've had 3 enemas. I've been up to A&E 7 times due to the pain. I was admitted once and spent 15 days in hospital being given laxatives. I opened my bowel (very watery) and was discharged even though I was still in a lot of pain. I've once again been put on laxatives (Movicol) but told to take it gradually (start of 2 sachets a day and on the forth day take the max 8 sachets a day for 5 days). I am in agony with the pains in my back, pelvic area and thighs (as well as my stomach). I have a follow up consultation with the Gastro consultant in 5 weeks time but don't feel like I can cope with the pains much longer. I had to see someone from the crisis team recently as I was considering taking my own life just to be free from the pain. I'm currently taking Pregabalin for the pain and to help me sleep but it doesn't do anything for the pain. My question is ... if the Movicol treatment doesn't work what are my options? I really can't cope for much longer I'm lied here crying with the pain in my back. Please can anyone help advise me. Thank you
