Hi,

You are blocked up; this needs to be treated with daily high dose laxatives for at least 3-6 days and the regular laxative for at least 3-6 months.

I would recommend taking something like PEG 3350 2-4 packets with water daily for 3-6 days and then continuing with 1-2 packets daily for a few months,

All this MUST be done with the advice of your treating doctor.

Also remember to eat a well-balanced diet that includes fiber-rich foods, such as unprocessed bran, whole-grain bread, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of fluids and exercise regularly.
