Not just for fun but I am desperate!

TMI, but with all the pain meds I am taking I have become very constipated. I took 2 stool softeners that were prescribed and I haven't pooped in almost 2 days! I hurt and I feel like pushing and it comes out a little then goes back in. What do I do? !!!!!!!!!

  • Gigi---do you have a good magazine by the toilet? Sometimes, if you relax . . . so does your bootyhole . . lol. Something as simple as relaxing can help the poo poo process! OR drink some coffee! Coffee is like a laxative for me . . drink some coffee and I can't go anywhere for at least 2 hours! lol

  • Sometimes, I have to use my finger inside my vag to press on the wall and help with pushing the stool out. Try using mineral oil instead of stool softener. I'm sorry you are having this trouble.

  • How long have you stayed on the toilet? With constipation you have to give yourself enough time. Spend 15 minutes and then try again.

    f all else fails you can do an enima. They're not fun but they get the job done!

  • I can't go buy anything right now, son is asleep and I can't drive. Problem is the more I push the more I aggravate what I thought was a bladder infection and turns out my tumor is pushing on my bladder.

  • Water water water! And anything with lots of fiber, especially cereals mini wheats worked the best for me! Good luck!
