The Unpleasant Truth

Folks, I know you really don't want to know, but the constipation issue has reached critical mass and well I'm just not sure what to do!

My Dr.'s office suggested stool softeners yesterday which haven't helped yet.  I spent MOST of the day yesterday on the toilet and in pain.  It was honestly probably the worst ever.  I won't even begin to tell you what my dear husband has helped me with, and he is sworn to secrecy!

In a desperate moment last night, he ran to CVS and bought me an enema which I was too afraid to use.

Any suggestions?  My doc is unwilling to do anything else until Friday and I'm not sure I can make it until then!  All I know is that I CAN'T use laxatives.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!


  1. Pineapple. I know, weird, but sometimes it works especially if it is not a food you eat often.

  2. Thanks for the advice Sarah. I'm going to try it!

  3. This is absolutely disgusting, but I have heard (and been desperate enough to try) prune juice. I had an...incident during a pregnancy that got out of hand when we were on vacation. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy!
