I am a Home care nurse for a quadriplegic patient. He is constantly complaining of stomach pain. At first we ( nurses and doctors) though it was because he wasn't on a regular bowel schedule. However, we have pretty much got him on a schedule of going nightly, maybe missing a night once in a while.. He just had a doctors appointment where his doctor decided that he was going to switch his entire bowel regimen up.. He used to take lactulose 3x a day, a nightly suppository, and senna ( one at night one in the am.) now he is taking lactulose 2x a day, and 2 senna in the am and the supp was changed to PRN. And his doctors said that he thinks he is withdrawing from pain meds. He has Oxycodone and would take about 5ml a day for pain. But now the doc doesn't want to give him any pain meds. I'm writing because I'm wondering is anyone has any ideas on what could be causing the stomach pain and any ideas on how to help him?.?.
