Haven’t had a bowel movement in nearly 5 days – what to do?
Q:I’ve tried:bran, cascara segrada, psyllium, oral laxative (prodium & metamucil), prune juice, water, exercise, coffee, oatmeal, carrots, beans, glycerin suppository, even an enema. Nothing is working and I’m feeling nauseous most of the time.I live in a remote area of the rocky mountains and we do have a hospital in the area, but that’s where people go when they’re nearly dead, not when they can’t poop! I’d really appreciate any advice. I am willing to try just about anything. There is a large store about an hour away, so don’t be afraid to suggest store-bought cures as well as ones that might grow wild.Thank-you to all who will take the time to read and answer this.
