This is Dr. David

I am sorry you have not been feeling well.

sounds like you are severely constipated.

you might need more than just laxatives

you might need an enema and stronger prescription laxatives to get your bowels going again.

when was your last bowel movement?

do you know how to give yourself an enema?

are you willing to go to the hospital or A&E department to be assessed by a nurse and to possibly get an enema to help you have a bowel movement?

I am on 6 laxido a day . they re not working it feels as if my body is getting ripped apart

Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 years ago.
this is even more reason to go to the A&E department and be evaluated.

you might have to be disimpacted for your stools to start moving.

you might need an abdominal xray to check your bowels

you might need an enema to have a bowel movement.

best to see a doctor now before the situation gets worse.
