This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
That is indeed concerning.
This suggests decreased intestinal motility.
You will need a CT scan to rule out any bowel obstruction first.
If no obstruction, then the problem can be managed by combination of laxatives.
Newer osmotic laxatives like Lubiprostone can be taken daily with Miralax powder.
Senna tablets also can be added daily.
Fleet's enema can be used as needed as well.
Are you on any other medication currently including narcotic pain medication?
It was my pleasure to help you today.
