My partner was very constipated after he started on oramorph; the GP recommended using laxido (movicol-type laxative) to clear it, and to then take it regularly to prevent the problem recurring. He had a BM on Sunday, and since has been having soft stools which arrive without warning. What I need to know is when to restart the laxido....is the soft stuff still the leftover from before? could he be blocking up above that? I have left a message for the hospice nurses for advice, but haven't heard as yet.
The hospice nurse said we should restart the laxido - if it gives him the runs, we stop again!
