Need Help

I am wondering if I am just constipated or if it might something worse. Recently I have felt a slight discomfort in the lower left side, near my hip. It feels like it could be my large intestine or colon possibly. Wondering if I am constipated because I have not had a decent bowel movement lately. Took some laxative but still feel tight and full on that side. Anyone experience this before. Thanks

Re: Need Help

sounds like you have something called fecal impaction, basically you have a build up of feaces on one side, probablly from being constipated at some stage and although you may be having bowel movements esp if you have bowel movements after a laxative this new feaces is so to speak bypassing this blockage, the solution is to keep taking some laxatives but also fiber supplements and loads and loads of fluids preferrably water this was the fiber will help shift along the impacted faeces as opposed to bypassing.

It may take a few days but stick with it ,once you feel its cleared you should still stay on a fiber supplement and this will prevent it from reoccuring, If you are in extreme pain or havent had a bowel motion in over 5 days i would suggest a trip to your gp or er to be sure its not an obstruction

Best of luck
Let me know how you get on
