Parkinson's constipation - AT MY WIT'S END
We've tried evertying, Prunes, Prune juice and OJ juice warmed up. A thing called "Rancho Recipe" given to us by mom's neurologist (prune juice, all-bran cereal and apple sauce), 200 mg. of stool softners every night and mom still 'feels' constipated. I say 'feel' beause to me if you've had a bowel movement the day before I don't think you're constipated immediately the next day. But I'm not in her body so I can only go by what she's saying and feeling. Also mom does not eat a lot much of the time and I tell her "input output" and all the prunes In the world won't help if she barely eats. On the days she's 'constipated" which is becoming moire and more despite all the above mentioned remedies I am held hostage to this and unable to leave the house as I am her primary caregiver and it's just us 2 in the house. HELP!!!!
