so ive been constipated for about 3 days, it all started after i had a bowl movement 3 days ago, it felt like i had more to get out and it wouldnt come out. so a couple hours after that i felt bloated and full on my right side of my stomache. i went to the doctor yesterday and got xrays and blood work to make sure its not appendicitis. and everything came back normal. they told me to make an appointment with a specialist to get it all out. but i cant get in for a few days. so ive been having green baby poop kind of dihareha , and small little bowl movments, there like small little rabbit stools. i dont want to wait for a few days, i want to get it out now. i took a ducolax about 4 hours ago and had one bowl movment but it was the same greenish dihareha. any body have any idea what i can do to flush my self out soon, i have megacolon and just in the past month ive been constipated more..... help please?
also im not throwing up or having a fever, also i can pass gas to.
also, as being a teenager i dont eat the best, i usually eat fast food, and drink soda, could this have something to do with it?

What is constipation?
Constipation means that a person has three bowel movements or fewer in a week. The stool is hard and dry. Sometimes it is painful to pass. You may feel "draggy" and full.
Some people think they should have a bowel movement every day. That is not really true. There is no "right" number of bowel movements. Each person's body finds its own normal number of bowel movements. It depends on the food you eat, how much you exercise, and other things.
At one time or another, almost everyone gets constipated. In most cases, it lasts for a short time and is not serious. When you understand what causes constipation, you can take steps to prevent it.

What part of being constipated, can barely walk, can't jump etc., makes your mother think the dog is doing well? I'll bet if she was constipated and could barely walk she would take herself to a doctor.
It's against the law to withold vet treatment from a sick dog and she can be charged. The fine will cost her a lot more than a vet visit and as a bonus she'll have a conviction for animal cruelty recorded against her name. If she thinks this is a load of codswallop tell her to check the law out herself.
I feel so sorry for kids who have parents who refuse to pay for a vet visit for their sick dogs. These poor kids are beside themselves with worry about their animals and they can't do a thing about it. When a parent agrees to own an animal they are obligated to care for it properly.
Let your mother see you are serious about getting this dog to a vet. Call a low cost shelter or human society and explain the situation. They may be able to suggest something for you. Let your mother hear you making the calls. It might shame her into doing the right thing.
Is there anyone else in your family you can ask for help? An auntie or an other adult family member?

it could be serious convince your mom to take him to the vet. Or you can clear it yourself (when a dog is constipated I heard you put your hand up the butt and pull it out.) I'm not lying, I do work at a vet clinic and that might be what your vet does sense he's been constipated for so long. If you decide to do it yourself then be careful, you don't want to hurt him. Try and find a way to pay for it yourself or whatever you have to do, if he's constipated to long it could severly hurt him.
it may be suited if he ought to handle it by using nutrients plan and exercising, extremely than any style of drugs. human beings can exchange into based on laxatives, and that in basic terms exacerbates the concern. He would desire to drink his 8 glasses of water an afternoon. I wager if he could drink 4 20 ounce bottles of water an afternoon, that on my own could make a extensive distinction. consume lots of end result and vegetables. And use as many total grains,and a few white grains, as achievable. If he's exceedingly sedentary, he would desire to start up strolling on a on a daily basis foundation. perchance start up with a a million/2 hour an afternoon. If he can no longer get it resolved with nutrients plan, water, and exercising, then there's a scientific situation that a doctor would desire to check out. wish he feels greater useful quickly.

Drink LOTS of water, eat lots of fruit/veggies...and take another laxative if this one doesn't work. Sometimes it takes longer than 4 hours.
I hope everything comes out OK.

Originally Answered: Is my dog constipated.or is it something else?
Is she drinking enough water? Whenever the body starts to get depleted of fluids, it starts trying to conserve it and will, thus, send less of it into the intestines to mix with the feces and make it soft. If she isnt drinking much, try giving her low-sodium broth (chicken or beef). If she'll drink that, it will be sufficient enough water for now. Also, as someone already suggested, give her a couple tablespoons of mineral oil by mouth (good luck!) and, if you have an eye dropper, GENTLY give her an eye dropper full of mineral oil up her rear end. The "skin tenting test", where you pinch the skin on her shoulders to see if it springs back, is NOT an accurate (or even near-accurate) way to test for dehydration. Only blood work can verify that. By the time the skin no longer springs back, the dog is severely dehydrated. As for the pumpkin, keep trying it but if it isnt working, go to plan B. Try the mineral oil. Do not give her any bowel stimulants. Since she's already trying to pass bricks, stimulating her bowels to do it faster will only make it worse. Stool softeners only!!
