    Been having issues going for the last week or so, in fact on and off for the last month!

    A friend said Milk of Magnesia for a good result without cramping or urgency!

    I took the recommended laxative dose last night but nothing this morning apart from a lttle gas!.. [​IMG]

    I have taken another large dose (two capfulls about 35/40ml) just before lunch and have had lots of water.

    I'm now back at work but getting really loud gurgles and feeling masses of movement in my stomach, is it possible I have had too much or not enough? :eek:

    I'm worried what may happen as I can't get to a loo that easily at work. Or worse on the way home later??

    any experiences??

    Hello Sally, Just saw your post, actually I just had great results from MoM, see my post today, don't combine it with other laxatives though!

    LOL, toilet humor just up my street (its the nurse in me) the gurgles are the passage of water into your stool and retain that water that is there, this stimulates the nerves in the bowel, it will make things move! it depends upon how watery the contents are as to your "holding" capacity !! sorry its making me chuckle as liquid poo=no warning

    Felicity..LoL

    I wish I had consulted you before I took Movicol and then in haste when it didn't work immediately took Milk of Magnesia the next day...

    I had exactly the effects you describe including the "liquid=no warning".. :eek:

    Was in Tesco and had to drop everything and RUN!.. I can add liquid also = "no control!"..lol TMI, good thing I keep Vanish for emergencies!..lol

    Good thing my Mum is also a nurse and I grew up laughing at potty issues, even my own!..lol So funny after the event but not so much at the time!
