    72 year old female with long history of digestive issues. Constipation from 5yo. BMs are described as hard, compacted “little balls”. For the past 3-4 years, patient has been taking Miralax daily and often uses enemas and suppositories. Gas and bloating is severe (this is her number one complaint). Gall bladder was removed 7 years ago bc of severe pain. She was told that she had only 17% function.

    Endoscopies in 2005 and 2011 showed significant damage to stomach lining likely due to excessive intake of NSAIDS. Has been on Omeprazole ever since.

    She is “addicted to dough”.
