Did she use and enema? or just like, pull it out? There's stuff she can take. My husband's grandma takes senna to keep her regular. Idk if that's something she could take or what... it's a laxative. (but she physically cant go anymore. she's got  alzheimer's)...

She may need a colonic or get a kit and fill it up with water, and flush herself. I do this when I'm dieting. That may help.

i'm sorry for your friend...sounds very uncomfortable.  is she pregnant? she may need to increase her FIBER BIG TIME! benefiber, red wine (if she's not preggers)...things with high amounts of anti-oxidants in it....she may need stool softener.

 I've been constipated before, but never to the point that I need to do that. It would take an apocalyptic constipation to make me wanna do that LOL. But for real, maybe she should try taking a laxative and try to get more fiber in her diet. I put Benefiber (tasteless powder fiber) in my OJ every morning and it helps keep me regular. Activia yogurt is good for that too.

Take Miralax powder, my nephew has a bowel problem and he has to take it everyday.  My sister puts it in his juice.  If that don't work, use an enema.  They are gross, but no different then taking it out ourself!!!  Like everyone has said she is missing something!!!  She needs to be taking something on a regular basis to keep herself regular
