Dad either has diarrhea or is constipated can't tell which one it is today. A couple weeks ago he had diarrhea for a week. Complaint of stomach pain so a trip to the ER and then he gets admitted to the hospital for pancreatitis. After a week there on morphine he was constipated. Pretty much still is from what he tells me (which is never the same). So he listens to everyone else on the phone but the person he lives with.
He has taken to eating yogurts... 3 a day. Someone told him that will work. I advised him they are high in sugar, one a day but not 3. He always over doses EVERYTHING! Oh yes he is diabetic.
I have tried low fat for him but he will munch down anything HIGH FAT he can get his hands on. I've made chicken soup, I try veggies every night at dinner staying away form rice now (someone told him no rice).
He says he has meds to help. Personally if he takes a double dose of dulcolax it should clear up in a day. Not sure I want to be round for that one. Trust me works very fast.
He has an upper GI yesterday, haven't heard what the status is. Any suggestions?
