I've been having a lot of trouble with Constipation so I desided to get some magnesium citrate to help speed things up. I didn't realize it's fizzy til I started to drink it. I'm only 4wks out and really need to take it...i tried Miralax but to no avail.

Is it gonna kill me to actually drink it even though we are not supposed to have carbination??? I NEED RELIEF!!!!

You will more than likely just be a little uncomfortable from the carbonation. But, nothing serious will happen.

Regarding relief, if it's possible you might consider an old fashioned enema. If you are really bound up it takes a while. If you've never done one before, they require time as the saline Water needs to be absorbed into the waste to soften it and pass. I was just about ready to do that earlier this week and finally managed to pass that brick. Next time (although I hope daily Miralax will keep it from happening again) I will just through in the towel early and get a disposable enema, a book and wait it out.

If you've never had the experience, after putting the Water into your body, lay down on your back or side for as long as you can letting the water be absorbed. I usually read for a while. It's certainly not fun or something people talk about much but it's a cheap way to solve the problem and not cause yourself too much harm.

Ok....i was able to drink about half of the 10oz bottle before the pain from the carbonation took over. I have been going to the restroom better good now...lol....and left the rest open on the counter to let the thing get flat. I'll drink the rest tomorrow. But I've been uncomfortable from the fizz for about two hours now. Let's hope I don't need to do this again!!!

      Still purging all of the larger clothing. This morning, a shirt that I ADORED wearing ended up on top. Hard to let it go, but it was also hard to let go of those habits that also no longer serve my highest good. Onward and upward!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!
