Advocating for myself


Recommended Posts

I have severe constipation. I go weeks between bms, sometimes can’t go with enema and have been hospitalized for constipation but my gi frankly sucks. I have a rare neurological disease that complicates my situation. How can I advocate for better relief with gi?

Dear Galaxywatch,

The best advocate for you would be a GI doctor that truly understand constipation and doesn't just treat it as if it is something that people can muster through on their own. Do you have a good GI doctor that you are working with?

Which state are you in?
