Been constipated for 11 Days after a appendix removal, what do I do?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been constipated now for 11 Days after my appendix removal via laparoscopy last week. I knew this could happen especially being coeliac so I began taking Osmolax 3 times a day. As this didn’t work after 3 Days I started taking two coloxyl tablets two before bed and 4 movicol sachets a day along with tonnes of water. I have been in crazy amounts of pain because of it so decided to go to the doctor after using enemas and trying exercise. The doctor said I had done everything but to Up the movicol to 8 sachets a day which I have done. I have now tonight been feeling horrible nausea and intense pain and still nothing so I’m not sure whether or not to go to the emergency because the pain is horrible.
