I usually suffer from IBS-D, but I keep getting a reouccuring bladder infection and with it I'm feeling bloated and constipated. I went to the doctors on thursday and she said she could feel that I had quite a bit of stool in there that I had not emptied yet. Few days on and my stomach feels hard and huge and I'm pretty sure there is A LOT in there. But it won't come out, I go to the toilet and nothing. I have been going, once a day(which is not a lot for me) but it has been smal and dry and quite difficult to get out.The doctor reccomended prunes. I have eaten two but so far nothing, and it is starting to get worrylng. I hope my bowel isn't blocked or impacted? My tummy feels uncomfortable and I can feel hard areas which I think is obvisously stool.ETA: managed to go twice, small bits though, the second lot were loose :S but i still feel like I am massively constipated. oh gr, why can't my bowel just work like anyone elses! And when I try to push something out, something comes out of my bottom, like a bit of the inside of my rectum maybe? I'm not sure wheher its just because I'm straining so hard?
