I'm T2 diabetic and I'm currently in a lot if pain (which is getting worse) due to a large build up of faeces in my stomach (a doctor took an x-ray which showed my stomach was full of it). I've had 2 colonoscopies and an endoscopy and am awaiting the results. I'm taking a variety of prescribed medications for constipation but they're not working (I'm managing to go to the toilet but the old faeces isn't shifting). The worst of the pain is in my left hand side hip and lower back (recently I've also had pain in the top of my leg) but there is also discomfort on the right hand side. It started over 2 months ago when I stopped going to the toilet. The pain is there every day (some days worse than others). Could anyone please help with what my options are? I've been prescribed Movicol, Dioctyl, Sodium Picosulphate, Lactalose, Laxido sachets and Senna tablets (as well as over the counter laxatives, suppositories and fibre supplement sachets) but they're not working (I'm going to the toilet now but my stomach is still full of faeces). I'm really fed up with it and have sometimes felt like I don't want to be here any more so that the pain will stop. I'm absolutely desperate for help! Thank you
