Patient :I developed an abscess 3 days ago. On day 2 I went to the ER to have it drained. I was prescribed Percocet 7.5, Septra-DS (800-160mg), and Keflex 500mg. It is now the end of day 3 and I still haven't had a bowel movement. I have tried stool softener, laxative, and suppositories. I am a 31 year old male 5'9" in height and approximately 212lbs. What should I do?
