Constipated, what should I do?

Question: It's more of a I can't pass a stool, it's large and it hurts so badly, so eventually I didn't pass it. I'm 21 and my parents gave me a stool softener, but I still have to go, and when i did, it's like mucus came out and that was it. I was reading that it means I've ruptured my bowels and it could kill me, what should I do, i don't see a doctor until tomorrow? I do have hemorrhoids and it has been bleeding a lot.

From the sounds of it, you do sound like your constipated and your hemorrhoids could be bleeding possibly because your straining too much while trying to pass a BM. In addition to that stool softener, make sure your getting plenty of fluids (WATER NOT POP), and some exercise, if it is just walking. Also, if you perf'd your bowels you'd probably know. Signs of perforation or peritonitis would be symptoms such as abdominal distention, no bowel sounds, gas production, no passing stool, severe abdominal pain, and possibly a high fever.

She is probably just constipated. This can happen if they have had a lot of fiber in their diet and not enough water among other reasons but these are most common. I have the same problem with my dog from time to time. Usually a little bit of milk gets things softened up and going. Hope this helps.

Sometimes a fecal impaction has to be removed manually. Followed by enemas, laxatives and a high fiber diet.

see ur dr first thing in the morning as they recommend fast remedies; but as a daily routine, try olive oil which helps a lot. Also,take a combination of black coffee and apple every morning.

There are pills and stuff that you can get at the store and make sure to drink plenty of water that helps.

could have whats called fecal impaction, make sure that your diet is high in fiber and water. Also make sure to eat low fat foods as that can make it harder to pass your bowl movements. Also when you do have a bowel movement , i know this may sound gross but look at it to make sure there is no blood, or foul odor or that it looks off color. If its any of the 3 it could be some type of condition. I would also be very careful when taking a laxative because they can be harmful to your intestinal system I would recommend getting gentle laxative, also try prune juice i know it might sound nasty but it helps to soften the stools. Also it could be medications that you are taking , if you are taking any
