Re: can't make a bowel movement
Due to your abuse of laxatives it will take you a long time to get your bowels moving normally on your own. You need figure out what the cause of your constipation is and work on eliminating the cause. Start using citrucel, metamucil, or fiber tabs 2-3 times every day and be sure to use it with at least 8 ounces of water. You will need to sit on the toilet for 5 minutes every morning after breakfast whether you go or not to try to get your bowels retrained. If you have not had a bowel movement by the third day then use a glycerin suppository to help with a bowel movement. The longer you continue to abuse laxatives the more permanent damage you are doing to your body. If the suppository is not effective you may wish to try an baking soda enema on that third day but please do not start abusing enema's either. Good luck.
