I notice that in shellycat's bowel management notes it says that P&B shakes may result in a slow down of normal BMs until the weakened colon gets used to things. So I've started taking P&B shakes and had a definite slowdown - not sure if it classifies as constipation yet. Do I have to DO anything? I mean even if it slows to the point of constipation, can one just keep taking the shakes and assume that the colon will catch up eventually? Or can actual blockages occur?
Also, if I am not able to get a colonic
or enema anytime soon - will a salt water flush perform the same function?
