My boyfriend has been constipated for over a week now
Patient :My boyfriend has been constipated for over a week now. He has been to the er twice. They have done an abdominal X-ray and ct scan both came back normal. The er dr prescribed him magnesium citrate. He drank half the bottle and after 4 or 5 hours still had no relief. Today he has tried a fleet enema and a suppository which both have done nothing to help. It has been over 3 hours. He has also been taking an otc stool softener twice a day. He is in extreme pain and nauseous.
