Try a fleets or suppository if it is right there.

You may need to take some softeners or Miralax if the issue continues. Definitely discuss with your physician.

Sorry about your situation. Luckily I've been going very regularly without any problems. Have you tried a stool softener or some Miralax?

I hope it's not a babies head :o... Just sayin, there's a lot of shows on TLC about these surprise deliveries.

a lot of us take a capful of Miralax every day to keep that kind of thing from happening. Once you get the current issue taken care of, you might want to consider doing that, too. Other things that have helped people: magnesium, stool softeners, SmoothMove Tea, etc. Just experiment with different treatments and see what seems to work for you, and keep up with it because it's a chronic problem for a lot of us. Meanwhile, you'll need to get the current issue taken care of before anything else...

I agree with KimTriesRNY above. If it's "right there", your best bet is something local like a fleets enema or a suppository.

this is one of those "ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" kind of situations. Once you're past this crisis you might want to take something like Miralax or Fiber supplements.

I take fiber supplements every day and if things start getting a little backed up, I don't wait. I will take something to get things moving. I typically just take a low-dose dulcolax, but I've heard great things about smooth move tea. Just haven't needed it.

I did the enema today. Worked immediately and so much relief. I definitely waited too long. I wont let that many days go by ever again.
