I have new dentures so I have not been able to chew or eat

Customer Question

I have new dentures so I have not been able to chew or eat properly. I'd become extremely constipated & was attempting to move my bowels frequently with more pushing or baring down. I noticed some hemorrhoids. I gave myself an enema & the hemorrhoids got much worse. Now I'm having very intense spasm-like discomfort in my bowels off & on. I also inserted a Preparation H suppository but the spasms continue & I feel like I have to have a bowel movement almost constantly.

You should take OTC GAS X and citrucel.

As your spasms can be caused due to intestinal gas.

You should maintain a good hydration.

You can take OTC Advil /Buscopan as well.

If your bleeding is profuse and your pain is getting worse over the period of time then visit ER.

Manual fecal impaction can be done.
