Originally Answered: constipated for over a week?!?!?
i know how scared you are. i had my son 7 weeks ago.
since then i have not been to the toilet by myself.
i tore in childbirth, then got a fissure, so held back. then 3 weeks later i really needed to go, so tried but it was stuck, it was so hard and compact it could not fit through my anus ( sounds gross i know but i cant tell it any other way)
i was screaming in pain, sweat pouring of me. my b/f called midwife she came, and sent me to hospital, i could not sit down, as it was so painful.
the doctor came to my cubicle and told me i would need a enema, after he did a examination.
he tried to feel in my back passage, but it was so blocked and hard he could not.
anyway they did the enema, and it was the worst pain ever, it moved the foeces, but caused a 2nd degree tear in the process.
i thought that was the end, but it wasn't, 2 weeks after it happened again (i'd not been till this time) and i had to call a ambulance. it was so babd a enema would not work so they did manual extraction, you are not put to sleep, but given gas and air. i've never screamed so much in my life.
then last sun, it happened again, i went to A+E and they did another enema, this time i was freaking out as i knew the pain that was coming. they gave me so temazipam, then the enema. then gave me gas and air. i again passed the blockeage, and its like cement not poop, does not smell, just extreamly large and hard so muscles cannot pass it.
again i tore 2nd degree and had 3 stitches.
no one can tell me why this keeps happening and im so scared, ive not been since last sunday, i've taken so much fibre, lax, softner and its not working. i pray i can go soon, with out all the pain.
so please drink loadsa water and take your senna, if you need to go don' hold back.
its really serious. i would not want you going through this.
i never thought i would ever in my life say this, but what i went through was WORSE than child birth!
i have not told anyone about this! its so embaressing, and having some hunky doc pic poo outa your **** is not pleasent!
you be brave and take lotsa stool softners so it just falls out!
if it still not working email me i have loadsa tips.
