I have severe constipation and have not gone in 9 days even with taking up to the max amount of colace per day (5 pills)! Anyone else in this same boat? It is seriously horrible. I drink more than is recommended of water, eat fruit, fiber one cereal and still. I had soo much pressure to go today that I literally cried because I couldn't and my dh made me call the OB on call. I was soo embarrassed! He was blunt and said that if I don't go by tomorrow that I had to go to the ER because I was getting impacted. He said to immediately go and get Milk of Magnesia and take 60 ml's (which is a lot and it tastes like fish and has a chalk feel) that I was gagging on it! But it worked 20 minutes later. What do you do on a regular basis to help? I need ideas because I can NOT have this happen again!
