I have had constipation few weeks. Went to hospital NHS

Resolved Question:

I have had constipation for a few weeks. Went to hospital NHS direct. The obstruction was in my upper bowel. Given large dose of Laxido. symptoms improved. Now I am unable to eat, my stomach is swollen and I feel unwell with some pain. My doctor has booked me in for colonoscopy and CT scan on my pelvis area. I have never had this problem before. I am 70yrs old. Should I go to the hospital again. my stomach looks too distended. ***@******.***
