In brief: Yes
I suggest you try milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) or mag citrate.
If no improvement, talk with your doctor.

In brief: Yes
Try taking MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) - mix one capful in glass of gatorade and repeat every 15 mins till you have a bowel movement.
Stop if you vomit or if belly hurts more.
