shade wrote:Sorry to hear about your problem…I had serious problem with LARS from the outset after my ULAR 8 years ago. After a year or so of misery I started warm water enemas every other day. This was a game changer. Eventually I needed to do them daily, however. The enemas were still working pretty well, but two years ago I switched to daily Peristeen. I prefer Peristeen, it is quicker and easier to administer and I think gives me a more complete clean out. My special problem: I have stenosis. This turned out to be its own unique problem that I had to learn to manage. It is a real drag to have a liter of water up there without being able to pass anything. Currently I get a CR surgeon to do a dilation every 6 mos (under anesthesia) and I do dilation on my own every 2 or 3 days. Earlier this year I was gradually having more difficulty passing so I switched from daily colace to daily miralax (about a half dose). The miralax has made things a lot better but it took some trial and error to figure out how much.
There are so many unique factors for each of us, so everyone's experience varies. But it helps just to get ideas from this forum for new things to add to the trial and error routine. I learned about warm water enemas from this forum, and I will always be grateful to the users who posted on that.
Best wishes and good luck…
