I have been feeling too ill to post over the last couple of days. I have had (sorry to share this with you) chronic constipation since chemo and it just got worse. Despite taking Movicol, nothing was working. I even tried Dulculax which normally is rocket fuel but nothing.
Yesterday I looked as though I was pregnant. I couldn't eat, couldn't get comfortable. I tried all the usual things. Hot water with a lemon, herbal teas, Aloe Vera juice (yuk) and three satchets of movicol but nothing.
In desperation, I phoned the doctors for an emergency appointment, I really couldn't see an end to my pain and discomfort. Luckily I managed to see a doctor who was very sympathetic and gave me some medication to take four times a day.
This morning; slight relief, but nowhere near normal. However, at least I feel as though I can eat! I have decided to keep meals small and frequent and keep drinking the herbal teas.
It looks as though this is the chemo side effect I am going to have to endure until September! Help!
