The pain is due to constipation and pressure symptoms in the abdomen. At this point, after 10 days of constipation, I would suggest an enema to relieve this.

Also, if the enema doesn't work, manual evacuation of stools is sometimes recommended.

Moreover, if at any point the pain/abdominal distension gets worse, XRAY Abdomen series will be required to rule out possibility of intestinal obstruction.

I Strongly recommend that you should get back to your doctor, preferably ER and have these details discussed with the doctor for further management plan.

Good luck

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
