Probably OK: But the more important question is why are you this constipated? How do you feel otherwise? If your abdomen is distended, you have nausea or vomiting, are running a fever or having other symptoms you may need to be seen sooner. You should see a doctor and have the constipation evaluated completely, including thyroid function tests.

Try OTC milk of: Magnesia, magnesium citrate, lots of water and prune juice. It's ok to wait till monday unless there's increasing abdominal pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, blood in the stool etc. Hope u poop soon. Take care ! (i hate people when they are constipated. The r full of s _ _ _! joke !).
