Hi everyonee :)

Im 13, female.

The last time I had a bowel movement was about 7 days ago when I had diarrhoea. I have been having problems with irregular bowel movements for almost a year.
I went to the ER last year because of abdominal pain that turned out to be a bowel blockage ( not severe enough for surgery )

I've had my appendix out.

The left side of my stomach is hurting. Sometimes it cramps and sometimes it only hurts when I move.
There isn't any poo in my rectum.
I've taken some laxatives yesterday, but they didn't work.

I only told my mum about this today, and of course she was mad I didn't tell her sooner.

Could this result in an obstruction/blockage again?

I need some serious help please!!!
Thanks in advance

  • My mother has had digestive problems where constipation was a major issue for years.... seeked out help from many doctors. The only thing that has helped... and it really solved everything is magnesium/ calcium supliments Calcium can't be absorbed without Magnesium, they go hand in hand. If you can get it in a powder form it's the best and absorbs quickly. Here's a # for a good one that I found "Cal- Absorb" 1-888-857-7841. Good Luck!
