I am so sorry. This sounds awful!  To be honest, before anything else, I’d ask for another doctor’s opinion.

@akeimi: I really think you should talk to a doctor again if you haven’t defecated within a day.  It’s pretty bad if you haven’t gone in 11 days!

Can’t they do an enima?  If it hasn’t worked in a day, do one.  It will be horrible for a bit, but it should work.  If it doesn’t its hospital time.

Well it doesn’t matter how relaxed it may make you, do not drink while taking ANY kind of meds, even if it is just a laxitive. If you are going to drink anything, make it water. Other than that, keep doing what you’re doing and try to add a few hot baths in there too.

Stress causes constipation…try not to think about it, i know its impossible at this point.

If you don’t smoke regularly, I suggest you have one with a coffee (I know its bad, but this is a desperate situation).. do it when you are alone. It should make you run to the washroom.

I really hope you feel better! In the mean time, I would avoid red meats or anything fatty..

OMG, I’m so sorry. I second the enema suggestion.

Oh man, I’ve only been constipated once and it was only for a couple days and I was miserable… So I can only imagine how you feel!!  I hope you feel better soon!!

I suggest not drinking as well, I don’t feel like that will help anything.  I also second the enema idea, you can even get them at the grocery store and do it yourself…  Good luck!!

You could also look into getting a colonic…

Yup, one word = Enema. I had to do this when all else failed following a surgery once. It will be one of the worst hours of your life, but then it will be over. There’s no need to wait and stress yourself for another day. You can buy one at the store and do it yourself.

Oh, no!  I’m glad you’ve called in the prescription strength reinforcements.  Also, hopefully knowing there’s nothing wrong with your intestines will make it easier to relax.

I know this is a long post but I have an idea for…

First off… I am so sorry to hear that that you haven’t been able to go… especially since you have important stuff coming up. I know how you feel I was extremely bloated in the summer due to intestinal issues (totally different situation but I won’t get into that). I would not drink though… you don’t know how the medication is going to react with the alcohol. I’m glad you have had an xray done though. At least you know there aren’t any blockages… and because of that…. I have a suggestion for you. I would check with a doctor first though.

As previously stated I have intestinal issues and have had to do preps for colonoscopies more than I should have at 23 years old. With that said… the rep used for colonoscopies flushes me out within 7 hours. But you have to make sure you aren’t doing anything that day and keep drinking as much water as you can as it can make you dehydrated. The stuff I took last time was call Pico Salex. It is powder you mix with water in a mug. You take it in 3 different intervals about 2-3 hours apart from eachother.

Once again… I would ask your doctor. I am no a professional, I have just been “blessed” by having Crohn’s Disease…

Best of luck to you and I hope can go #2 soon… it’s not fun being all backed up

I would not perform the enema yourself.  I’d call your doctor and see what they can do.  Seriously.
