Constipated for two days? Topic: Constipated for two days?
September 23, 2019 / By Ballinderry
Question: Ive been constipated for 2 days now, ive had a big lump of poo and read on the internet about positions for bowl movement while on the toilet. it worked for the first one, but then i realised there was a smaller one but still couldnt come out. When the first one came out, it came to a point where it hurt way too much but i felt like it was just about to come out, so i pushed abit harder and it came out, but i think it cut my a** abit because it was bleeding, this now makes it almost impossible to go to the bathroom but i want to get rid of it. Should i just eat some fruit cause thats all i got now, and oats? I dont know but i want it gone and how long will it take to be gone..

You can deal with the anal fissure in a few days (hopefully) by using hemorroid ointment (like Anusol) on the spot where it bleeds. Practising anal Kegel-exercises (flexing the anal muscles) is good for strengthening the brown-door against damage. When you know there's a big hard lump of s.h.i.t in there, best thing is to take a glycerine suppository or a soap-sliver suppository - either one will empty your butt in minutes.

If I were you I'd try a stool softener or gentle laxative... Here's some info that might help with prevention! "Constipation in Adults Constipation Overview Constipation refers to a decrease in the frequency of bowel movements. For some people, it may mean difficulty in passing stools. A constipated stool is hard because it contains less water than normal. Constipation is a symptom, not a disease. Generally, constipation is difficult to define clearly because as a symptom it varies from person to person. * The frequency of bowel movements also varies greatly, ranging from 3 movements per day to 3 per week. Generally, if your bowel has not opened for 3 successive days, the intestinal contents harden, and you may have difficulty or even pain during defecation. * A common misconception about constipation is that wastes stored in your body are absorbed, are dangerous to your health, and may shorten your lifespan. Some people have an underlying fear that they will be "poisoned" by their own intestinal wastes (feces) if they retain the waste in their bodies for more than a certain length of time. None of this is true. * Older people are 5 times more likely than younger people to develop constipation. But experts believe that older people become too concerned with having a daily bowel movement and that constipation in this age group is overestimated. Constipation Causes Constipation may result from a poor diet, poor bowel habits, or problems in elimination of stool, whether physical, functional, or voluntary. These are the most common causes of constipation: * Poor diet: Eating foods rich in animal fats (dairy products, meats, and eggs) or refined sugar but low in fiber (whole grains, fruits, and vegetables) may cause constipation. * Poor bowel habits: Ignoring the desire to have bowel movements may initiate a cycle of constipation. o After a period of time, you may stop feeling the desire for opening your bowel. o This leads to progressive constipation. For example, some people may avoid using public toilets or ignore going to the toilet because they are busy. * Medications: Many medications can cause constipation. o Antacids - Those containing aluminum hydroxide and calcium carbonate o Antispasmodic drugs o Antidepressants o Iron tablets o Anticonvulsant drugs * Painkillers: Narcotic-containing drugs, for instance, may interfere with bowel functions. * Travel: Changes in lifestyle, low fluid intake, and eating fast food may cause constipation. * Irritable bowel syndrome (spastic colon): This is one of the most common causes of constipation. Because of changes in bowel function, if you have this disorder, you may have crampy abdominal pain, excessive gas, bloating, and constipation. * Laxative abuse: Habitually using laxatives gradually will produce dependency on them. o You may eventually require increasing amounts of laxatives to move your bowels. o o In some instances, the bowel will become insensitive to laxatives and fail to open. * Pregnancy: Constipation during pregnancy may be due to several factors. Each of the following conditions produces severe pain on defecation, which may trigger a reflex spasm of the anal sphincter muscle. The spasm may delay bowel movement and decrease the desire for bowel opening as a means to avoid the anal pain. o Mechanical pressure on your bowel by the heavy womb o Hormonal changes during pregnancy o Changes in food and fluid intake o Anal fissure (cracks in the anus) o Hemorrhoids (piles) o Anal stenosis (narrow anus) * Intestinal obstruction: Mechanical compression and interference with the normal functions of the bowel may occur in the following ways: o Inflammatory adhesions and joining of tissues o Intestinal tumors or foreign bodies o Gallstones that have become immovably wedged in the intestine o Twisting of the intestine upon itself (volvulus) o Intussusception – "Telescoping of the intestine" in which one part of your intestine slips or is drawn onto another part just below it (This occurs mainly in children.) o Abdominal hernia - Loops of the intestine become obstructed o Damage to nerves within your intestine - (Spinal cord tumors, multiple sclerosis, or spinal cord injuries may produce constipation by interfering with the function of the nerves supplying the intestine.) o Connective tissue diseases – Conditions such as scleroderma and lupus o Poor-functioning thyroid gland - A low production of thyroxin, a hormone produced by the thyroid gland, hypothyroidism, causing constipation o Lead poisoning and other metabolic disorders"

Not only should you go see a doctor, you need to do it RIGHT NOW. I seriously mean RIGHT NOW. Call your doctor's office, tell them you need to see your doctor ASAP, if they can't see you within a few hours, you should consider going to a hospital. Why? If while trying to poop, the rectal lining was torn, this could cause VERY SERIOUS problems, and in the worst possible case, death. Why? If fecal matter (poop) is able to get into your blood, tons of bacteria could get in, the wound could get infected, and your body could go in to septic shock. If you are under 18, call your parents Right now, if they don't answer, keep calling until they do. When they answer, tell them you are constipated, when you were pooping you pushed to hard, and saw blood in the toilet. If you don't wish to follow the above advise, and just want the poop gone, go to your local pharmacy, tell them you need an enema for constipation. Fleet enemas are cheap, easy to use, and work within 15 minutes. However, if there is an open wound, this is not a good idea, and you should seek immediate medical help.

Don't know EXACTLY how fast it will be gone, but use a stool softner. Go to the store and buy Metamucil it works wonderful. It isn't a laxative (whatever you do, don't buy those EVER!) it's a drink that will make it easier for you poop to come out easier so you don't have to push so hard. Which brings me to the next advice: DO NOT PUSH SO HARD WHEN YOU POOP! You CAN get a hemmroid and that is not good to have TRUST ME! Long story short, I've been struggling with the same situation for years! I've had constipation and grew a hemmroid! I have overcomed and cured them BOTH! Hope this helps! Goodluck!

the bump might be a hemorrhoid. A hemorrhoid is something that men and women both can get. It is not a disease or anything like that. But instead it is a sore on usually someones bottom. It is cause by sitting on the toilet for too long (most common way to get one). when you sit on the toilet you are pulling the skin apart on your but so you can poop. you might have slightly torn skin and it has become a hemorrhoid. they never go away. i would suggest drinking prune juice (even though it is nasty).
