My cousion had disc prolapse.Now she is doing ok. She was on bed for quite sometime. Could exercise much later, that too very specific ones. I think her doctor suggested her some. She also had weight problem. Took her some time to loose weight. For calcium why dont u take some supplements. and eat lots of paneer and milk and eggs (if u eat eggs, sorry dunno if u do). But why dont u consult a diet and fitness expert. May not be manageable all by your self since u have both the disc problem and calcium problem.

Good evening. I have been on a low carb, high protein diet over the past 3 weeks and am enjoying this change of lifestyle. i only eat clean foods, plenty of fruit and veges, lean chicken and fish. Typical of everything the professionals tell you. I have been losing weight also which of course is a bonus. I started taking metamusil over the past 3 days in my morning juice plus drink 1 ltr of fresh water plus a couple of coffees daily. My problem now is, i have not used my bowels for the past 3 days and my flatulance has increased and really smells offensive. What do you suggest? Please help.

doctor1 MD

The last 3 days I ve passed stools that appear to have white clumps of a stringy like substance intertwined in it. I have changed my diet and eat more protein than usual. I also started working out. The diet change was about a month ago as well as the working out. Any idea what it could be? Is it just something associated with the high protein diet and a reduction in carb intake?
