I keep vomiting, vomited once today. doctor says its because iam so blocked.

i feel dizzy light headed and unable to do anything most of the time just sleep and really have  no apetitie.

has anyone else experienced this

and give the laxatives i am taking when can I expect them to kick in??

i have lost a lot of weight and feel pretty week.i haven ot really had a good bowel motion in a few weeks.

how long given my laxative routine and the facts its only really been 2 days i have been precribed this routine before i can expect something?

further do people often vomit with constipation like this?

    What about having a colonic irrigation? That cleans you right out, doesn't hurt atall, And they can sometimes find out why your so blocked, I know it costs but it's not a lot if money, but that could be a optionsmile hope this helps and hope you get it sorted

    Hi overthehill

    Do you drink plenty of water and liquids? say you haven't eaten for a while you need to eat to get the bowel moving. What you eat is important lots of fruit and veg and fibre such as cereals and wholemeal or gluten free bread...don't become reliant on laxatives. You are feeling weak dizzy and sick due to hunger try and have a hot cup of strong tea and some wholemeal toast..Strong hot tea always works for me!...

    You have to try and eat and drink to get your bowel wishes.....

      Hi overthehill

      The pack containing the laxatives should tell you how and when the laxatives will work...if they don't work in the specified time do not keep taking them..they will make you feel sick...i would stop taking them and try to start eating and drinking sensibly. Without fluids the stool on your bowel will dry up and become solid and become difficult to pass.....try to eat and drink little and often until your tum can deal with wishes..
