My 77 year old father was diagnosed with ALS in January of this year. He is at the stage now where he can barely still walk (with the aid of a walker) and is on bipap for about 22 hours a day. His most recent problem is with his bowels. He is not constipated but is so weak that he doesn't have the strength to push to release his bowels. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what we may be able to do. We have tried different medications and it has worked for a while but now he is getting cramps in his stomach from the pressure. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
