If it has been 8 days, you are probably impacted with poop. If you have taken fiber and pill laxatives regularly over that period of time and they have not worked, they are probably not going to. I doubt that there is anything that you could take orally at this point that would work. I am not sure what your mom is planning, but I am guessing that it is an enema or laxative suppository since it will be administered rectally. An enema is your best option at this point. It should work within a couple of minutes and the liquid will soften the stool to make it easier to pass. I would just go ahead and get it over with rather than wait until 6 PM. One thing though - you should ask your mom to let you give it to yourself. The directions are on the box and it is much less embarrasing to do it to yourself. Good luck.

Clyde Originally Answered: Is gluten intolerance common in people who have fibromyalgia or people who have autoimmune diseases like lupus?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune intolerance to the gluten contained in wheat, rye and barley. The current standard is for an endoscopic exam to determine that the villi in the small intestine are damaged and as the blood tests get better and better the diagnosis is often made from blood work. However, there are people that are gluten intolerant that when tested for celiac disease don't test positive either because the tests aren't accurate enough or the wrong part of the small intestine was sampled. It also might be that they are developing celiac disease but it hasn't progressed far enough to be measurable. Anyway, these then fall into the category have being non-celiac gluten intolerant and should probably avoid gluten also. People with one autoimmune disease do have a higher percentage of having another autoimmune disease than the general population. If you get a copy of Celiac Disease - A Hidden Epidemic by Dr. Green, it has a section about different autoimmune disease and their relationship to celiac disease. I am adding some references. Read the insert called the celiac iceberg about halfway through the one about celiac by accident. This describes the different levels of gluten intolerance pretty well. Also check the csaceliacs website for a local chapter in your area. They may have a doctor they work with and typically a doctor that is used to working with identifying celiacs would be able to help you with your conditions even if it isn't celiac. Good luck and hope you can get some relief.

While I cannot speak for fibromyalgia, there is evidence suggesting that autoimmune disorders "cluster." I recall reading studies showing that many children with type I diabetes (believed to be autoimmune) were also diagnosed with celiac sprue (gluten intolerance). Lupus would also appear to be related. An actual positive diagnosis for celiac requires an intestinal biopsy, something that a gastroenterologist would do, but there are also blood tests you can have your doctor take to check for antibodies associated with celiac sprue. You don't NECESSARILY need a diagnosis to go on a gluten-free diet, but if you are wondering.

Be patient. Your digestion was messed up by the surgery. You'll take a bit of time to start going again, as you've found out, but it *will* start. Again, be patient. It took me awhile to start again.

Lactulose syrup from the chemist. Nice and gentle stool softener. Drink plenty fluids as well.

I Hepatitis C is undeniably a serious disease, it's not as bad as many people imagine.Even without treatment, most people with the hepatitis C virus (HCV) live decades without having any symptoms. For years, the standard hepatitis C treatment was a combination of injected interferon and the oral antiviral drug ribavirin. Recently, a new form of interferon -- peginterferon, or pegylated interferon -- has become the standard of care. It's a significant step toward better treatment.
