Elderly mother obsessed with bowel movements/constipation.
I know I've mentioned this before, but it's getting worse. My 88 year old mother's
obsession with her constipation is getting totally out of control. It's a daily subject
with her. We could have never ending talks about constipation. Her bowel movements have been irregular for years. It seems like no amount of stool softners or fiber or certain food will help. Only the dreaded milk of mag. Prune juice sometimes and the same goes with laxatives. My mother gets downright rude and angry with me over this......as though it's my fault she can't poop. Cussing is very common when she goes into her "constipation rampage". I just thought I would write about this to let you all know that the curse of caregiving
continues on strongly every day of my life.
