Common Questions and Answers about Miralax kidney damage

I was told after his surgery that the kidney, because of the damage would always present as hydronephrotic, just probably appear smaller and be less symptomatic as it was. He has been put on miralax and it seems that every time he shows pain in the kidney that there is also constipation present. You almost begin to wonder if the problem will ever completely be pain-free for our children.
I've seen gi doctors an they just tell me to take miralax or benefiber but it doesn't work the way I'm used to the laxatives so I always turn back to take the hand full of poison pills. The doctors all say that it could cause kidney damage, intestine damage, it also could lead to having to wear a bag and have your body not work at all. I pray that God performs a miracle in your wife's life and myself. I know this is a very old comment but I hope you read this and take something out of it.
I am somewhat of a kidney person myself. I have what is called MSK or Medullary Sponge Kidney .. that is one you can do a Google on ... I am prone to making stones; even when the stones pass I am prone to kidney pain. I get urinary tract infections w/o typical symptoms AND my urine tests usually are negative which is a problem to treat! What comes to thought if all other things are ruled out is that you may be producing kidney stones that are URIC ACID in nature vs.
You need a barium enema. Go to the drug store and get Miralax. The generic is fine. You may need to use more than a capful, but try 1 capful in a glass of water first. You can use it every day. If that isn't strong enough, you could get a prescription for Amitiza, but it's about $400 if you don't have insurance that will cover it. You can also take magnesium citrate to stimulate things. Stop all dairy. Get tested for Celiac disease. Don't eat fried food.
I began feeling pain on my right side above my groin. I went back to gyno and he did ultrasound to rule out hernia. He suggested it may be nerve damage so he gave me lyrica to try. It wasnt the cure. This area is still distressing. It hurts more in the evening and when I get out of bed I have to hold with pressure my right side to keep it from hurting more.
They not only help you go, but they also soften the stoof so it is less painful going. I've never tried it, but I've also heard good things about MiraLax - but again, I believe it's a liquid so you may have the same issue with the taste. As mentioned in the above answer to your post, increase your fiber slowly - adding too much fiber (especially too quickly) can actually make constipation worse.
) and not nerves damage going on. One of the main reasons I am considering doing the MiraLax tonight is my friend called today and said they may be letting him out of the hospital tomorrow. I don't know how I would be able to pick him up if I am in the bathroom all day tomorrow.
but a resident told me it was probably not essential at this point. As to a colonoscopy....do a prep with Miralax (spelling?)...very mild...and you really won't be all that uncomfortable. It is not acidic..so no worries.My doctor didn't care how I cleansed the colon ...just that I did it. The procedure is nothing. You are put to sleep and wake to hear your doctor tell you what is what. Back to bowel problems....we have to be aware of what we eat and staying regular...
Taking Milk of Magnesium is helpful but can have long-term consequences (lowers blood pressure). My GI DR prescribed Miralax as an alternative to surgery for my condition and it helps tremendously. Good luck!
Also, if I touched my abdomen-especially in the middle but all over, it was felt like everything was bruised or something. My kidney area started to hurt, I wasn't peeing much. I was pretty miserable and it scared me death, so I went to the ER. They did some xrays. My colon was full of air. They gave me a bag of IV fluid and I did start to pee a lot. I woke up this morning kinda feeling the same way, but not as bad.
I think it's a blessing that you found out about the HBP before it caused blindness, kidney damage, and a stroke(from a bleed in the brain). Now, you have the chance to get control of the BP, which I think is great! I had a cat w/ HBP and I found out about it when I noticed(and freaked out) blood in her eye!! The BP had caused blood to leak from the vessels of her eye, and it eventually caused blindness. I'm happy that you caught this in time!!
Hi Guys, I am sure that many people with MS and other neurological diseases suffer from constipation, this can happen either due to the medicines that we are taking for our MS or due to the nerve pathway damage, in my case it has been caused by both, for a while I was on a drug called Vesicare which I am sure many of you take for bladder urgency. This drug is known to cause constipation as it drys out our mucus, so usually we end up with a dry mouth and dry other bits.
Dangerous side effects or death can occur when alcohol is combined with a narcotic pain medicine , causes serious results in- asthma, COPD, sleep apnea, or other breathing disorders; liver or kidney disease; underactive thyroid; curvature of the spine; a history of head injury or brain tumor; epilepsy or other seizure disorder; low blood pressure; gallbladder disease; Addison's disease or other adrenal gland disorders; enlarged prostate, urination problems etc.
Adding D will make your serum calcium test lower...but the damage is still being done because now, your body is absorbing more of the high calcium into the gut, but if you let your body do its job...it has lowered D to prevent you from absorbing so much Calcium, which can cause stroke or other bad symptoms.....this is bad...kidney stones, and high blood pressure...
The reason I say this is because I have a daughter that at the age of 18 months, was diagnosed with kidney problems that caused a lot of discomfort, especially when sitting or lying. The pain is usually just under the rib cage in the mid part of the back. I am not trying to diagnose your child, but it is definitely worth checking into. Hopefully your Doctor will take some suggestions like this one. I truly hope you find some help for your child.
they wanted me to have a angieogram but i refused being scared . i was haveing kidney prob. from all the blood pressure meds i was on before, thats another thing i was on clinodine most the time i was on methadone for my blood pressure, i wonder if that can make a difference wd off the methadone since its used for withdrawls? i think i spelled it wrong clonidine that looks bet.
My uncle is a nurse and said that the pain sounds like it could be my gallbladder, so I had a ultrasound on my gallbladder, pancreas and right kidney 2 days ago and they said everything is normal there too. I was convinced that I had gallstones because the symptoms matched perfectly and the pain comes on after eating greasy or fatty foods. I did a liver cleanse and ordered a gold coin grass tincture to soften up any stones in there, and have been drinking gallons of organic apple juice.
The swollen testicle 8 weeks later suggests spermatic cord damage. The radiating pain suggest nerve entrapment or damage. Seek other Doctors. Please let me know how it goes by leaving me e message.
I am on the next thing after Nexium and still having pain! I think it's my liver, Doc thinks it's my kidney. - Will know soon enough, I hope... So, I'll be on here later in the evening. Have a good night and sleep well.
This to me sounds off bells in the area of vestibular problems and the ears, because a close family relative (different than the one with the kidney damage) has been tested and found to have vestibular problems. He feels off balance, particularly in shadowed lighting or on hills. He has complained before of feeling like he is going to fall over. You may want to try getting a referral to an ear nose and throat doctor to pursue the ear possibility.
Since about the age of 25 and currently at 44, I have had many bouts with prostatitis, kidney infections, epiditimitis, and orchitis. Just recently I found out that I have a fistula (hole) in my prostate and rectum. Currently pain can be so bad that I can't function. I'm not suggesting that you might have a fistula, since the pain now is far worse that what I used to have about a year ago.
At the start I had some sharp grabing pains real low down and thought maybe a kidney stone-s . Doing research I found I was prone for stones as was taking gega amounts of tums ( calcium) and drink lots of milk along with vitamins. I thought this was maybe from irritation of the urithra. Also If diebetic as I am gases can form in urinary tract because of sugars present .
Diabetic gastroparesis usually gets worse. Postsurgical usually does not have the hope of improving, but will not get worse because the damage has been done. As far as what you are in for...Nausea and/or vomiting after eating, early satiety, occasional abdominal pain (maybe), weight loss, malnutrition, bloating, dehydration, etc. That's my main symptoms. Some cases are not as severe as others. Some people are able to maintain their weight by eating small meals all day long.
My husband's family never looked into it and by the time they discovered what it really was it has turned into much more severe seizures and the damage and scarring was already done. The seizures have only become more severe as the years have gone by. The meds become more expensive as they become harder to control and the seizures can impact things like personality development and centers for emotion as well as memory, self esteem and self confidence.
My doctor has not been helpful at all. I have found if I eat high fiber foods or take Miralax on a regular basis, I do not have this problem, but let me get constipated or diarhea and its going to be bad.
Today I am having such pain around my kidney area. Has anyone else had this happen? I had one several years ago and felt absolutely fine.
I have an appointment with a urologist tomorrow about it and im going to print this out because you all have done such a good job describing exactly what is happening to me (lightning bolts shooting up my *** from my perineum). Mine has been more frequent lately. I had my first and only kidney stone a year and five months ago so ive been curious if i might be passing another. Then i though it was a prostate problem (stay with me ladies) but now that im reading this, im all screwed up.
