Very Bad Constipation!

Posted , 3 users are following.


for the last 7 days ive been quite constipated and ive been to the doctors and they gave me laxitives ive taken then 2 and a half days ago and it did relieve me a bit. ive taken 6 laxatives all together. and for the last day I can hardly poo still even tho i am on laxitives and i have eaten tons of fibre aswell

I can feel like I want a bowel movement but its like my rectum wont let it happen even with hard pushing. I can sometimes get poop out and sometimes not.

What do I do im trying not to worry but its been nearly a week now since this started. I do have IBS.

    Keep persevering with the laxatives and fruit; even up the dose of the laxatives. That's the very best you can do. I have had constipation for two weeks before I got relief. Try not to strain for a bowel movement because it can cause haemorrhoids or fissures. When I am unable to pass stools, I up my fruit and if necessary take laxatives and I never force it. Constipation can take time to subside. Try to relax.
