The last time I properly had bowel movements was Sunday

Patient : The last time I properly had bowel movements was Sunday 24th May. I've been to hospital twice since with severe abdominal pain and the second time they said they think it's constipation as my X-ray showed some foecal loading. I've been taking laxatives since last Thursday (started with Senna then switched to Dulcolax as Senna wasn't working but my doctor has told me to switch back to Senna again). Went to the doctors on Tuesday and she gave me Laxido but I had a bad reaction to it so only used it once. I used an enema (Micralax) yesterday and only a tiny bit came out after. Every time I eat anything at all, it causes absolute agony so I've barely eaten anything for 10days, maximum of a couple of bites of something a day but I also have no appetite anyway. I'm not actually in any pain unless I eat but I'm going on holiday Friday-Monday and would like to be able to eat whilst I'm away! I would appreciate any advice on this as the stand-in doctor I saw on Tuesday didn't seem to think it was a particular problem and just said continue taking Senna for another 1-2 weeks which I didn't really think was very helpful as it's making absolutely no difference. Thank you!
