I am sorry you are having bad constipation.
cocodamol has codeine in it and can worsen your constipation.
you need to use an enema and a strong laxative like miralax or 1-2 cups of magnesium citrate to help get your bowels to start moving.
have you ever used a fleet enema before?
you can buy these enemas at the drug store, like Boots.
you should make a trip to the chemist drug store and by some laxatives and fleet enemas and fleet suppositories so you have them for your holiday trip.
once you get your stools moving, you will feel much better.
hello. I am perched on lavatory juggling laptop.
hopefully you can have a bowel movement.
but if you can't have a movement, you will need to get to the A&E or to the drug store to get stronger laxatives and enemas and suppositories to help the stool move out.
are you ok?
I am familiar with the laxative and have used miralax somemonthsago. . I used a suppository unsuccessfully 12hoursago. but had not thought of the enema . I will try the all night supermarket pharmacy assuming iopen still.
best of luck to you
I hope a fleet enema helps.
you can use an enema every 12 hours until you have a movement.
buy extra so you can bring them with you on the trip.

yes, I know.
try the enema and also the miralax as well.
and drink plenty of water
and eat prunes.
and I bet you will get your bowels to start moving.
