HereToLearn Posted November 13, 2022 Report Share Posted November 13, 2022 My mom has Ibs-d, she takes linzess, she has had multiple tests and doctors say nothing else is wrong. I know she has always had attacks every few months, normally she is alone and handles it. This time, I am here, and I do not wish this on anyone. She made it to the bathroom the first time, but she didn't make it the 2nd time. She says she is SUPER WEAK, is that common when having an attack? She is 56. How long do these last? Its been about 29 hours since the first bowel movement. I just feel so bad, I read online unless there is blood in stool or severely dehydrated [which I am afraid of, i keep having her drink a little water every hour] there isn't much the hospital will do. This has to be so emotionally and physically draining on the person and family. Thanks for listening, just needed to vent and try to get some clarification.
