Cannot pass bowel movements

Posted , 7 users are following.

can anyone help. I cannot go to the toilet unless I use a suppository that the doctor has given me. I can go over a week. I have been backwards and forwards to the doctor about this and just get fobbed off. My stools are not hard, they are soft I just don't get any urge or cramping that I normally used to get.

    Hi Paula,

    Ur post grabbed my attention.

    I have the same problem as you.

    I dunno what I should do to have an urge.

    Of course, still, I'm doing trial and error on different remedies...

    Normally, no urge , it may happen after three or four days or a week...

    Strangely, I only have the urge to empty my bowl when I am under a sudden and abrupt stress and excitement wink

    A quick cramping and then you can guess the rest smile

    If you find any effective solution please let me know.

    And if I do find any remedy I will post here.

    Have you tried Prunes. They may help to some extent. Some other fibers can also help. Did you try any?

    You need to keep going back to your doctor and insist on help.  If you still get nowhere, see someone else.  However, you could try introducing more fibre into your diet which is contained in vegetables and fruit. Try oranges grapes, or prune juice.  If this doesn't work, there may be another reason for your symptoms which your doctor should investigate.
