Constipation.: Are you having pain? Is your abdomen getting rounder? My concern is that you may have an actual blockage or obstruction - worst case scenario, of course as I don't know all the specifics of your current plight. But not having a BM despite all those efforts means that you should really be evaluated by a doctor, and get an abdominal X-ray to rule out obstruction. ...Read more
