I haven't had a bowl movement in 11 days. I used Miralax (polyethylene glycol) yesterday and the day before as well as some prunes and was very gassy yesterday but no bowl?

In brief: Let's get moving..

11 days is more than usual but not unusual.
Make sure you are well hydrated. Some medicines/supplement can cause constipation, so may need to stop those. Daily fiber can help with regularity. MOM or Magnesium citrate may help for situation like this. For a more rapid relief, a gentle fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) will likely result in quick evacuation. If not helpful, consult your doc...Good luck.
