My bowels have slowed right down again since last week. Haven't been to the loo since last Tuesday so almost a week. I'm not straining otr can't go, there us just nothing there yet to make me go. Am feeling very gassy, very sick and bloated and getting the usual stomach pains I get when my bowel slows right down. The only thing that usually makes me go is a mild laxative but I don't like taking these too often. I'm supposed to be going shopping tomorrow but doesn't look like that's happening because I feel so rough. I've just read something online about slow bowels and wondering if it's why I feel sick:Constipation is a national pastime and slow bowels are more common today than years previous. For one thing, people not only ate better 100 years ago, they were more active and got out doors more. When the bowels slow down, toxins are not eliminated and are reabsorbed and carried back to the liver for recycling and elimination.If they are reabsorbed to the liver it can't be good can it because that can make you feel sick. Just wish I could get my bowels regular where I go once a day then I'm sure I wouldn't feel so sick or so uncomfortable.
