Dehydrated: You could be dehydrated. In addition to your laxatives, you should be consuming lots and lots of clear liquids. You should be peeing alot as well as pooping. If you are concerned or have warning signs (short of breath, dizzy, chest pain) either call the doc doing the test tomorrow or go to the er.
