Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
Relistor is methylnaltrexone for opioid induced constipation.
if you still have constipation and don't have bowel movements once a day, I would go back on your regimen of dulcolax and stool softeners and whatever you took before to help your bowel movements.
oxycodone can be very constipating
you want to make sure you keep having bowel movements once a day
make sure you drink plenty of water and fluids as well.
do call up your doctor and let them know that the injection didn't work
let me know if you have questions.
