Quoting Bri An Brad Fitch:" im def gonna try it cause i cant stand being sick to my stomach all day. I have another question its ... [snip!] ... seems to help. It gets to the point where my side is swelled an my lower left side of stomach is so tender i cant touch it."
I took Mira-lax powder when I would get like that. Colace is only a stool softener, it only makes it easier when you go. You can call your doctor and see what they allow but I know a lot of women who have taken Mira-lax or another form of laxative. If it gets too bad, you might have to get an enema to help it out lol And taking them at night should help. I don't take them until I am walking to our bed otherwise I get a horrible headache that lasts about 45 minutes.
