Re: [AlternativeAnswers] Slow Transit Colon and Encrusted Rectum, Sigmoid from Splenic Flexture Help


Thank you so much for the idea Cheryl.
As I mentioned I am a student of western herbal medicine and have tried slippery elm (ulmus fumus) as a thin gruel and enema. with very little success. But that was a few years ago.

I have always found it more useful as a drawing agent and mucilage for upper GI problems like GORD/GERD, indigestion and general acidicty

But I really thank you again for the thought and will re examine this herb and maybe give it another try, maybe combined with psyillium.
Peace light and love to you and your family,

Hello I'm Jen I hope you are all well.
I am 28 and since birth have suffered with being unable to open my bowels without assistance and a chronic anal fissure. This condition is not affected or improved by diet, exercise or medication and my bowel seems to 'shut down' with a 3 month fecal impaction and paradoxical diahorrea. I also developed chronic pain at 24 due to the chronic impactions and constant fecal stasis. I am currently seeing a colo rectal surgeon and pelvic floor specialist, plus a psychologist. But I have been under medical specialists all of my life.

I am currently on a lot of heavy prescription meds:
Fleet oral phospho soda 2 bottles every other day
Movicol/Macrogol 3 to 8 sachets a day
Sodium Docusate 3 times daily
Trans anal irrigation 3 times daily with 1 litre warm tap water
Glycerine suppositories 2-4 daily (please excuse spelling)
Lidocaine anesthetic gel 6 times daily
Fleet enemas PRN (but useless)

Also for pain I take:
Oxycontin 30mg 2 times daily
Oxycodone PRN up to 80mg daily
Buscupan 20mg 4 times daily
Paracetamol 1g 4 times daily
Diazepam 10mg 4 times daily
Zopiclone 7.5mg nightly

My question is can anybody help me out in my current situation? I have been blocked since august, my specialist knows this but is happy to leave me in my current situation for now. I am unable to cope with constantly being blocked and unable to pass a bm. I use olive oil enemas too but they do not help to break down the concrete my body seems to produce no matter what I do. I have no diagnosis and am srill undergoing tests. I would just like alternative information about colon cleansing and how to clear my colon asap. I am intolerant to fibre and being unable to eat and in pain have lost nearly 7 stone in 6 months. I have already tried massage, aromatherapy, herbal medicine (I am a holistic therapist and have been studying a honors degree in Medical Herbalism for 3 years but have had to take a break due to my severe symptoms) but I would be eternally grateful for any other suggestions. I really hope someone out there can suggest therapys I have not come
across in my research. I am not expecting a miracle cure or a magic wand I know I will always have to deal with my condition.
Any and all advice will be appreciated.
Thank you for reading my ramble
Love peace and light
