Common Questions and Answers about Colon cleansing miralax


Avatar n tn Well I had these tests done the other day, and to my dismay, found out that I do have a hiatal hernia, and a tortuous colon? Does anybody have any idea with a tortuous colon indicates as in surgery? I am told it is caused by my years of constipation, it elongated my colon/intestinal tract? Also, I read in papers (mine) that my colon was dialated, can anyone enlighten me on that...I wont' see specialist till a few weeks.
Avatar f tn Your bowel movements might be wild and gassy and uncomfortable, so begin this the day before the weekend. 2. After that three-day liquid diet, you should not be doing any further enemas or BabyLax. So, for the next three more days, stop the juices and special milk, keep drinking water at just six glasses, and now eat a raw carrot daily and add just one fiber food daily of your choice like: vegies, salads, oat cereal, whole grain bread, lentil soup, or whole wheat noodles.
Avatar m tn I think it depends on the type of enema. Using enemas frequently for constipation can cause your rectum to "forget" how to have a bowel movement naturally. Using enemas for "colon cleansing", I believe is not good, because your colon doesn't need any cleansing, it does this itself.
Avatar n tn Hello, Colon cleansing (colon therapy) encompasses a number of alternative medical therapies intended to remove fecal waste and unidentified toxins from the colon and intestinal tract. No scientific evidence supports the alleged benefits of colon cleansing. The bowel itself is not dirty and barring drugs or disease, cleans itself naturally without need for assistance. Some types of colon cleansing present potential hazards also.
Avatar f tn Gas is put in to expand the intestine and allows the doctor to see the inside of your colon. The entire colon is examined as the instrument is gradually pulled out. After an anterior resection and rectopexy you will probably be put on a "low residue" diet for about 2 weeks. No nuts, fresh fruit, salad, very few vegetables, and nothing that would be able to scrape the inside of your colon.
1387175 tn?1326404597 We have an hereditary colon cancer in our family, and my children from puberty, had to have them yearly, and they had no issues with it except for the prep. Different doctors use different things for cleansing the colon for the procedure. This ends up causing you to go to the bathroom many times the night prior to your procedure, but it's just to make sure your colon is clean so they can get a good view of it.
Avatar f tn However, I talked to an herbal doctor and he suggest an all natural digestive assistant called ACOG Colon Cleanse. It is also called ACOG Herbal Master Body and Colon Cleanse. He recommends it to all of his IBS and constipation patiens. I'll tell you, this stuff really works and I found that it not only helped my digestion, but it also keeps me at a good weight.
Avatar n tn She has always had trouble going to the bathroom but since she's been taking miralax before going to bed that issue has been resolved. Recently her stomach issues and pains have gotten much worse. It doesn't matter what she eats but literally 5 minutes after eating something (could be just a small snack) her stomach blows up and she starts with the gas pains. She was up in agony the past two nights.
725248 tn?1316165845 My PM has me on Miralax and it is one of the best medicines out there. It is sold over the counter and it even comes in generic form. I have to take it every other day due to it working so well. If I didn't take this, I would be impacted due to the narcotics I take. Also, getting up and going for a long walk helps too.
957790 tn?1246727956 I've tried Metamucil, Miralax, Dulcolax, Psyllium, Colon Cleansing/Detox kits, massive amounts of fiber (between 40-45g/day).......nothing has worked and I'm out of ideas. I haven't been diagnosed with anything because the doctors don't seem to care to take the time to find out what's wrong. I've researched some different options and I'm assuming I either have Hirschsprung's Disease (which was actually mentioned by the most recent doctor I've seen...
1134203 tn?1260436750 The GI doc wrote for three day bowel cleansing utilizing magnesium citrate (1 pint x 2 days), peri-colace gel caps, Miralax, and plenty of fluids. It was not the best results, but it worked well enough for him to see what he needed to see. At colonoscopy he intubated to terminal ileum. The TI was moderately inflammed along with inflammation and mild ulceration of the rectal vault. After the case he told my wife that it looked like Crohns.
Avatar m tn Zelnorm, Amitiza, Miralax. I see a colon hydrotherapist weekly for colon cleansing. My last resort is colectomy surgery to connect the small intesting with the rectum. The surgeon has acknowledged possible complications such as scar adhesions causing an obstruction. She was not clear on the probablilty of this complication and encouraged me to "do research" before making the decision.

1356964 tn?1302091035 Try to make this brief as possible.. Took my cat to vet a few weeks back due to her drinking excessive amounts of water and noticed her urine smelled stronger of ammonia.. UA showed no bacteria, and no, a culture was not sent in.Vet then suggested a thyroid profile and called the next day to say it was "normal", as was her blood glucose level of 101. Vet then suggested a 10 day round of Amoxi-drops as she thought perhaps my cat may be trying to fight off a bladder infection.
Avatar n tn At one point they thought it was colitis,from what dr explained to me constipation may develop during active flare -ups of ulcerative colitis, because the inflamed rectum triggers a reflex response in the colon that causes it to retain the stool,and its also common to have painful urge for bowel movement and cant ,even if the rectum is empty,this is called Tenesmus.Keep up on fiber,fluids,and being active helps alot.Good luck to you and Happy Holidays!
Avatar n tn The ER is covering their butt by wanting him back over there, but at the same time they did nothing for him to help pass the impaction for over 13 hours. Yes the tests are necessary, but so is action. I have read about Colon Cleansing products and many say those are just scams, but at this point with an impaction I'm not sure even if they really did work if they'd help or make things worse anyway. Thoughts? Thank you for anyone reading. This is very important to respond to fast.
Avatar f tn My gynecologist told me a couple years ago to start using Miralax daily, which does help me stay more regular but does not completely prevent attacks. I can have between 1-6 attacks a year to 1 every year or so. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to them, except major stress. Which we ALL have. I found this place because two nights ago, I had a bad episode. Barely made it to the tiny 'mud room' toilet. Picture the size of department bathroom store stall, only smaller.
Avatar n tn The fact that your sigmoidoscopy was normal makes me think that there was likely no significant abnormality of the colon. I have heard of one herbal remedy which you may want to speak with your doctor about. It is called "odor cleanse". You can find it at I realize this is not an FDA approved medication and before taking it, you should speak to your doctor.
Avatar n tn This was after two prior resection surgeries of the colon and many times of the colon twisting and blocking up. I'm a 59 years old male. I did not have to have a bag. They connected the small intestine to the rectum at the same time the colon was removed. I had to get cut open because I also had some small bowel blockage at the same time. My surgery was a little tough because I developed a infection and had no food for over three weeks.
765439 tn?1292964014 can that in itself relieve my symptoms? is it possible im suffering fro ma dirty colon? i hear your colon is clean when youre pooping clear liquid..
Avatar m tn Lately I've had absolutely awful gas. I've tried Gas-X, colon cleansers, charcoal, probiotics, Beano, Miralax, and more. I'm beginning to wonder - after reading someone's mention here about sulphur - if Bromelain isn't the culprit. From some reading, Bromelain is a sulphur increasing enzyme complex. I'm not scientist and I will admit most of the info baffles me but seeing the word sulphur anywhere near Bromelain's article page gets me thinking.
Avatar n tn This Saturday i am going to completely clean out my colon and start it all over. I will you use the Miralax Laxative twice every day and see if it helps me with this problem. My doctor says she thinks i have irritable bowel syndrome. I have heard of this from a friend of mine but she had different symptoms. If this goes well i'll tell you.
1358341 tn?1282213443 The Flortiflora is good for diarrhea AND constipation as it puts the good flora back into the colon and helps with the digestive tract.It also has antioxidants and vitamins..Ask your vet ot look it up on the web. You said blood analysis wasn't complete, so I am assuming one was done and is not back yet ?? If potassium is low, I am sure vet will suggest a supplement.
Avatar f tn I was in so much pain that I felt like I was pooping knives!! Went to the colon and rectal surgeron and he said I definitely had anal fissures and by that time I had done all the conservative treatments so he offered surgery and I figured after giving birth, being in the worst pain of my life for 6 couldn't make it worse. So 2 days later I had the operation. The dr said my fissure was 3 times the size of a normal fissure.

I got an anonymous paper in the mail a few months back that explained everything and showed pictures of the different parasites that inhabit humans. I read that some types of parasites like flukes can live in the liver and gallbladder and even the biliary ducts and cause this pain, which would also explain my swollen lymph nodes and constipation.
Avatar n tn felt nothing at the time of EGD being done, but did wake up, and feel the insertion of the colon tube, had pain each time it was advanced and found myelf calling out. Felt violated, lied to, and was in alot of pain while waking up more, and after ward Feeling I had was like a horse kicked me in my upper and lower abdomen, felt bruised internally. was realy sore and in alot of discomfort.Just wanted to get out of there ASAP. discomfort and soreness continued on for several days.
Avatar n tn You can feel a sense of cleansing or deep relief when the episode is over however whether there is any kind of actually cleansing going on I'm not so sure and would probably doubt it. If you were toxic and this is how your body reacts to get rid of it then I suppose there could be a possibility of that but then I would have to question whether its afib or just rapid heart rate which are different. All the things I brought up and the questions you had ie.
Avatar n tn Main reason for these choices, location of discomfort(entire abdominal area) belching and gas(very loud noises) movement and sounds coming from abdomen. Considering really good colon and parasite cleanse. Has anyone had any success with this? Also have been trying to figure out if any particular food is triggering symptoms, but not much success with this because it can take up to 72 hours for your body to have an aderse reaction to a food.
Avatar n tn This is a simple vasovagal reaction. It happens to many people when they have any kind of gastrointestinal upset, because it stimulates the vagal nerve. It's the most common cause of fainting, and some people experience it nearly every time they have a bowel movement (bummer)! You can see my explanation to Trika (drinking water causes unconsciousness) for a complete explanation of how vasovagal reactions happen.
