Zofran Poop

dressing change day and since I am like a rare bird in the zoo with 3 wings they are bringing another person to train.....I do not mind, I am glad I can is funny that i am a rare bird....meaning no one has hyperemesis............why am I so lucky?

Constipation is a nightmare again and I googled "Zofran Constipation" and I found a lot of information none that I have not tried.  But one woman put, "A zofran poop is worse then child birth!" I was talking to a friend who also has hyperemesis currently but she has c-sections and she said if a "zofran poop" is anywhere close to child birth she is glad she has a c-section!

I decided I wanted to try fiber pills and the first thing on the label it says: Warnings: Choking: taking this product without adequate fluid may cause it to swell and block your throat or esophagus and may cause choking.  do not take this product if you are vomiting.................I decided it was worth the risk though my nurses told me not to take it, I went to take it last night and my husband had a cow and talked me out of it.  BUT IT IS SUPPOSE TO HELP!

I took laxatives instead and at 11am I called Brad at work and said, "I pooped!"  I think we have been married too long.............must be love :)

My word of advice to people with "zofran poop" is make sure you have a stool in the bathroom to put your feet on, your feet should be as high as your butt is, someone told me this once, and boy they were right!

Oh I can so relate to your post. Zofran messes with your bowel like nothing else. Definitely worse than childbirth - that is the easy part if you have severe HG!
