I'm 16 years old. I drink about 64oz of water a day. I weigh about 120 and eat pretty healthy. I recently got constipated out of nowhere and I haven't been able to go in two weeks without the use of an enema. When I do use the enema it's like pencil width stool and brown type mucus comes out (sorry) My stomach has been hurting from the bloating and cramping. I recently discovered I have a swollen patch on my lower left part of my stomach right above my hip. It doesn't hurt unless I squeeze it. You can see the swollen part without touching it. It's pretty big. I've tried mineral oil, laxatives, and eating a lot of fruits and veggies. I've tried prune juice and peaches and things like that with no luck. What's causing all of this?? My mom thinks I should wait it out and wait to go to the doctor.

  • Mostly medications can cause constapation. You should try a high fiber diet with metamucil daily. If this doesnt help a high colonic is a good option to get rid of the impacted stools.
