Constipated for about a week

Hey guys, just new here. I'm a bit frustrated with my digestion. Usually I have absolutely no problem. Even if my stool isn't as soft as it should be, my diet isn't the best. But I can always handle it.

I've had a fissure which why I hesitated. However, it made me become very constipated. I haven't really stooled in about a week. And while I did try to eat only fiber-rich foods and healthy things and avoid meat as much as I could, I still ate a moderate amount. Now I 'm not really in pain but I do feel like it has to go out. Sitting on the toilet for 30min does not help though. I'm a bit desperate at this point and very afraid. I know that constipation can be very serious, even lead to death.

I heard for fast relief enema would be my best choice. Can someone give me some advice on what to use? It really has to be something fast as I work alot and need to time it right. And please as painless as possible, I'm very sensitive

Miralax or the generic kind takes a couple of days.
