experience My suppository
I really hope you find relief soon. It seems logical enough, but I had a hard enough time sticking the little bullet up there I think this is going to give me some relief I don't feel the hard pressure anymore that I have been feeling, which is making me think it's working I'm just so afraid that if I try to go and poop right now it might not be ready yet, and I'm going to think that it didn't work I will try to keep an open mind, but if this suppository works, it wasn't too horrible to insert, so I could probably deal with it if it happened again Honestly though, the suppository wasn't too much of a help Still a huge amount inside, couldn't push it out, and couldn't bring it back away from the bum hole.
I was almost in tears I called the hospital because I just didn't know what to do Just after I hung up the phone with her I think my body was like 'oh crap' and I was finally able to get it out I am so glad to hear you finally got relief!
I had this problem not too long ago, and almost went to the ER myself because of the pain. Fortunately, the MoM seemed to work after about a day of taking it, but it was not pleasant. You may want to, in the future, try making sure things are lubricated in that area, to help ease things along I have also been on a regimen of 2 colace per every 2 days or so since the "incident" to make sure it doesn't happen again, as I am now on iron supplements, which do NOT help things in that area one bit!
Sounds like a poopy situation! For future -- I have had a prescription for suppositories-- even before I was preggo --super fun right?! Well let me tell ya -- way better than Senna or DulcolaxI would have to take like 6 each time I got backed up to get me to go and they make you cramp, fill up with gas, and then it is an awful bathroom experience. With the suppository, it is glycerine--works like vaseline, so the longer it is up there the better.
It will feel way weird at first but over time it dissolves. The good thing is, you don't need to hang out by the toilet. If you don't feel fully relieved after the first one, you can use a second -- they aren't harmful Hopefully you don't get too stopped up from here on out! OMG- I feel your pain! I was in the bathroom trying to go for almost an hour I was too afraid to leave the toilet, and no one was home and I had no way of finding any help- mostly out of embarrassment.
I high fived my dad today when I pooped without any problems lol. Sorry, just got to reading this post. I am glad to hear you got some relief! Just a little tidbit for future reference. And don't feel bad, I've been there myself!
Hubby laughed at all the things I did to avoid using an enema or suppositories! I was like, "Glad to know I'm so entertaining.
