My passport is on the way to canada. It has been 29 days no poop. I sent email to HK doctor to request for the surgery, doctor said if he could not clean up the poop, it may need to do in the operation room, there would be a big wound and carry more potential risk.
The doctor here refuse to do surgery for me, according to the x-ray they said there were poop in the lower part only.They seem doesn't care, here is no pirvate clinic.
The main things is no laxative can help at this moment. I am very scared and don't know how to do it.
I know you asked for Morecambe, so until he pops in here, I'll tell you how to get that digestive stuff out of there. Usually if people wind up in the hospital with a clogged-up colon, the nurses administer water enemas. The water begins to break down the waste, and slowly but surely, a little comes out, allowing more to move down, and after several days of this, it'll all come out, but in its own good time.
But I have a couple other tips, too. Could be the waste is impacted or hard as a rock. If this is the case, while the enemas will help, a quicker addition to your effforts is to get those little clear plastic gloves in the pharmacy, put plain KY jelly on a few fingers, and gently get in there and pop some of it out, continue until you tire. It should come out either in balls or chunks of balls, and by getting some out, the rest of the waste will come rolling down more, at least what's at the very bottom.
Another idea is, there is a rectal laxative for babies, it's a little box in the pharmacy and called "Baby Lax," I mention this often in my posts because it works so well, and you lubricate the area a little with plain KY jelly, squirt two of the ointments out of the box in there, and it causes a really concentrated muscle movement and stuff will come out in minutes. You can repeat.
Whilst doing those mechanical things (and I would try them all), you also need to drink about six glasses of water every single day as this is going on, and eat whole wheat bread or a little oat cereal, with Acidophilus milk, and a small glass of juice. That will provide just enough bulk to keep things moving OUT of you instead of stagnating there. Also, for nutrients, some noodle soup is okay, maybe a handful of fresh blueberries daily will be good, and eat a scrambled egg cooked in olive oil three times a week. By the way, one single cup of coffee daily will often make the bowels move naturally.
Don't eat a lot of food, but don't starve either, and any food you eat now should be REAL easy to digest... no steaks, no french fries, no heavy stuff... just bland soft diet. One more thing you have to do during this, is exercise every day whether you like it or not... break a little sweat from, say, stretching or walks. Exercise helps the bowels move.
Now, the enemas and digging out waste, that's what the nurses would do (other than surgery) in the hospital. Quit taking laxatives by mouth, especially since they don't work. The Baby Lax is almost a miracle ointment, but try enemas first and gently digging out, and after one day if you get no results, throw in the Baby Lax ointments. Drink plenty of water, eat the stuff I suggested, and exercise. And try to relax in between these efforts, really totally get your body in a meditative state. Drink a little coffee around the time you usually go, it might help things move along also.
Hi - sorry I missed your above posting. I had not realised that you had made a fresh posting rather than a "post comment" on our previous exchanges. Never mind...
I have no real experience about "moving stubborn/impacted motions" but I am very pleased that ggreg has come in with her advice and I really hope that this helps and offers you some relief before the operation (now in HK??). Maybe you are extremely lucky and ggreg's advice might just avoid the need for surgery??
Before I had my total colectomy operation I asked the surgeon whether there was a risk that any liquid spillage from the incisions in the large intestines could enter the abdomen and cause peritonitis. But I was told that at the time of surgery the patient is given large doses of antibiotics to counter this risk. However, I do think it is a reasonable question to put to your surgeon. On the other hand, I am sure that if the operation was highly likely to cause dangerous life-threatening infections, then they would not do it.
It sounds as if your final decision is to travel to HK for the operation and I really hope that you have managed to overcome all the concerns - i.e. family worries and also your son.
