Any dr that he goes to will likely say the same. Drink some juice/miralax/stool softener, unless he has a blockage.

Try to get him to take probiotics, and a natural stool softener

prune juice really helps a lot.

How long has it been?  He could be compacted which would require medical intervention, but I agree with the other replies.  Try an at home laxative and if there is no bm after that take him to his dr.  I don't think an ER is necessary.

 stool softener/mineral oil in juice/ and extra fiber if his stomach hurts just because he's constipated

if his stomach is tender to the touch, he may have diverticulitis or a bowel obstruction

good luck

 He won't go to the hospital until he's ready, so the best thing you can do for now is to help him stay as comfortable as possible. Water. It's a natural stool softener. Prune juice is a natural laxative. Keep away from sodium and dairy. It'll eventually happen unless there's something seriously wrong with him (and he'll eventually realize this and agree to go to the doctor).

I agree with the others and  if he is really desperate to try all measures before having to go to dr .. then our dr said it's fine to use an at home enema... they are inexpensive and  easy and WORK FAST!!  Then if he still doesn't go he really DOES need to see a dr because he  could have a bowel obstruction or some serious issue and  that can be dangerous!  It's nothing to be embarassed about.. Dr.s don't think anything embarssing about such things, they are so use to it, it's nothing to them other than concern to help their patient.

Those are great for occasional use.. but if he hasn't gone in 3 days, he is pretty backed up and needs "The Bomb"

Go back to the pharmacy and get a bottle of this:

And then wait.. if that doesn't work after a few hours, then add this:


These two products are what is recommended for a colon cleansing prior to any type of scoping procedures.  usually though, the fleet's works the best. 

Mix it with some ginger ale and then drink it with a straw. The straw will help get the liquid to the back of the throat so he won't taste too much of it. 

And make sure he drinks lots of water after.. 

Then keep the bathroom empty.. he will be using it.
