Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Pain medication can cause severe constipation.
Fleet's enema can be tried upto 2 times i 24 hour period.
However, it is better to try oral stool softener as well.
Senna and dulcolax can be tried together short term.
Please also discuss with your doctor.
