Hey all just looking for some advice.
I went to emerge 2 nights ago because of severe abdominal pain that wouldn't go away. I felt very bloated but could not release gas (did have a small bowel movement that didn't seem to relieve anything).
They did an x-ray and blood work and told me that my colon is full and I have air trapped. He also told me that it is dialated? (Can't remember the exact word he used, or what exactly he was talking about) but he said it's probably because of how bloated I am.
He gave me an emergency constipation kit that had 4 5mg ducolax tablets and a packet of off brand restoralax to mix in 1L of water, drinking 1 cup every 10 minutes. He also told me to buy restoralax and take it every day for a month to let me colon go back to a "normal" size.
I am making this post because I am still in severe pain. My bowel movements are all water and I get horrible cramps when I try to eat, or any time really. It hurts to move, hurts to walk. The doctor told me my white blood cell count was slightly elevated so I might have a viral infection as well causing this, and that I'm too young to have diverticulitis or anything like that. He referred me to a general surgeon to get a colonoscopy because I told him my stools have been very irregular and thin/narrow which I always thought was caused by a large cyst on my ovary. My appointment with the surgeon isn't for a month and colonoscopy will probably be months after that.
He prescribed buscopan but apparently no pharmacy has it around where I live. The pain is horrible and nothing even touches it, I've tried Tylenol, Naproxen.
Could constipation actually cause this much pain even after taking that many laxatives? And is there any recommendations on what I could take for pain? Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to be as specific as possible.
