hi i have cystic fibrosis and recently found out that i am constipated all the time. everytime i have a bowel movement it feels like there is still stuff to come out, it always feels full and my lower abdomen particularly the lower right part sticks out. last week i had a very busy week with work and only had 4-5 hours sleep every night, when the weekend came i got to have a real sleep. i got 6 hours of sleep then woke up and had a large bowel movement then went straight back to bed, i got another 4 hours sleep and again as soon as i woke up i had another large bowel movement and went straight back to bed. the same again after getting 2 hours sleep and when i woke again my tummy felt clear for the second time ever in my life (im 27 years old). and all this time i thought i might be a little overweight even though i had defined abdominal muscles (i exercise a lot both weights & cardio & play rugby). my tummy was completely flat and felt totally cleared.
i have had a similar experience once when i was younger and experimented with ecstacy and stayed up for 2 days partying (and not eating) and when i woke up i noticed i had no feelings of fullness in my tummy and again it was completely flat
i have seen my dr today and they have given me movicol, i tried one sachet and had a bowel movement some hours later but still have the feeling of not being totally cleared. should i up the movicol dose or try it for a few more days before doing so? what do you recomend? regards
