I have been suffering with constipation for a wee while now and really struggling with it. Just now I've not managed to go for exactly 1 week even when I've been taking dulcolax. I've been getting abdominal pain that's been coming and going. I'm not sure what to do?
I'm just out of hospital on Tuesday as I also suffer from urinary retention and spent 5 days in hospital unable to urinate on my own so have been taught self catherisation.
My doctors is now closed till Monday should I just wait till then? I've been on lots of different laxatives and none seem to help at all? I've had to have a couple of enemas in the past. My doctor doesn't know why I am suffering from constipation and it's really starting to get to me. I'm female and 20 years old, I don't eat much as I've lost my appetite but I do eat healthily and exercise. I also drink lots of fluid because of my catheter.
Any suggestions on what to do would be great as I just don't know what to do! I've tried taking a double dose of laxatives last night but still nothing...
