Thank, DJ. Glad to help. I still have my left-over supply of Phillips, which I had smuggly thought was the most “trust-worthy”, prior to my investigation. Ironically, I didn’t do the research for myself, but for my precious tiny rescued kitten, who became near death with constipation. I wormed her with herbs and gave her the non-Phillips brand milk of magnesia...a tiny amount. That worked. After that, for any constipation problem, I just gave her a little cooked okra juice. Weeks later, healthy, when she could eat solid food, I found her a new mama, where she thrives.
Once a day since my accident 13 years ago. I take 6-7 Senna and 3 Ducosate Sodium pills each night. Each morning I take a Magic Bullet suppository and sit for 60-75 minutes. I hate this, and sometimes feel as if it is the Bain of My Existence, but it is necessary.
Hello everyone. I work at a research center and we need volunteers with SCI for whom bowel function is a challenge, in order to help us in our effort of developing a new and easy to use bowel care device for use by people with SCI and neurologic diseases such as ALS, Parkinson's etc. who suffer from neurogenic bowel and constipation or incontinence. That is right We are about a year out from getting this thing approved by the FDA if all goes as planned We are a not-for-profit organization, and have done some good work in the past. No need for digital stimulation, Bisacodyl suppositories, enemas, laxative pills, anything by mouth etc. Diet rich in fiber would help but is also not required. So far we have had great success with this.
If you live within 60 miles of New York city and want to do a research study let me know. It requires 7 visits of about 90 minutes each. You will get reimbursed for this. 4/26/2018

About once a week or so when its ready to come out. I usually feel my asshole yawn for lack of a better term, after it yawn I have about a maximum of 30 minutes to find a toilet. I stand up from my chaIr and carefully pul down my pants and diaper far enough for the turd to clear Nand then one quick push and it's out. Then begins the clean up since the turd is far to large to go down even an industrial toilet. I either break up the mango sized turd with a stick into small enough pieces to pass through he plumbing g or else I just use again sized zip;lock bag pick up the turd and throw it away in the trash. I have no sensation really so I don't feel constipated or anything and I have found that this is the best and easiest way to deal with it.
nauticalmike, hi. Welcome. You only ‘go’ about once a week? That’s not healthy. online.snh.cc/files/2100/HTML/hhhc_appendix_a.htm “A well-formed stool always means constipation. The significance is that the colon is packed full like a sausage and that the fecal matters have been so long retained that they have been compacted by the absorption of water. The whole colon is filled, and the bowel movement is the result of the pressure of the incoming food residues at the other end. When the body wastes are promptly discharged as they should be, the colon never contains the residues of more than two meals and at the after-breakfast movement should be completely emptied so that the disinfecting and lubricating mucus which its walls secrete may have the opportunity to cleanse and disinfect the body's garbage receptacle and thus keep it in a sanitary condition.”
