Keep trying @jennifer1967. I also wonder if you should give him more dairy products. Try full cream milk and also I hope you're okay.ive tried to contact the gp over my husbands constipation as it seems like its going to be ongoing. at 8-05am i was 27th in the queue so done an e-consult instead. i want to check if i can give him more than 1 a day and another prescription so not urgent as such. the e-consult itself is a pain and repetitive but if it get results then that will have to do.
he has lots of dairy products and eats yoghurts with fruit in them. keeping him drinking fluids. im battling with this a bit but i think its just another step down. he doesnt even feel like going.
yes poor bloke he came down the stairs shouting hallelujah!!! i didnt give him anything last night. now im listening to music and hes snoring! not a good sound affect.
just phone gp and they have no record of the e-consult even though i phone them yesterday about it. so waited for nothing. that system obviously worked. the review they will mention to the doctor. im going to go away and quietly scream and then go out for a while. its lovely weather and gets me out from the building site my neighbours have createddone their survey and we have no insulation in the loft. no wonder it was so cold. it has to be 300mm thick so they come and do that and put some boards up. my son has got a great job of clearing the loft. few surprises i expect.
wanted to go out but waiting for the doctor to phone so may not be able to. his constipation has eased and my daughter requested some laxido and bought it round with his month of meds yesterday. he needs a meds review.
i cooked yesterday without him looking over my shoulder. he has been slowly losing his cooking abilities.
Oh how irritating please let them know what you think of their service @jennifer1967!just phone gp and they have no record of the e-consult even though i phone them yesterday about it. so waited for nothing. that system obviously worked. the review they will mention to the doctor. im going to go away and quietly scream and then go out for a while. its lovely weather and gets me out from the building site my neighbours have created
i put lemon squash in it then he doesnt moan. i thought that as i was thinking what @canary does as i dont want a mess. he was supposed to have a med review too but the receptionist is going to speak to the doctor about it and how they can do it with me. phone would do. they dont need to complicate it. did order my oramorph so not a total waste of time. the oramorph has sucrose in it so good for my sugar count. not sure if they do a sugarfree version.@jennifer1967 - re. constipation, I was told by the doctor that if you are very constipated Laxido can take weeks to work. You can take 1 - 3 sachets a day - I mix mine with Ribena though it doesn't taste too bad - it's an orange taste. If it works too well (!) you can adjust the dose down to whatever suits you. I find I have to take it regularly probably due to the medications I am on. I was told to drink 2 litres of water a day as well (hard to manage that) and fibrous fruit and vegetables.
thank you @MaNaAk im worried more about my prescription and whether they are going to deliver. i dont want to run out of oramorph. phoned chemist and doctor and obviously busy as i cant get through yet
