I had severe lower abdominal/pelvic pain 2 weeks ago that I went to the ER for. They did an x-ray and said I was blocked up, so they gave me a suppository which helped a little, then we went home and did an enema which got rid of everything. But it has been 2 weeks now and I still have pain in my lower abdomen and pelvic area, but it is not bad -- just steady. It feels somewhat like it did leading up to my constipation. I have heard it takes a while for your body to heal after constipation -- like up to 6 weeks before things quit hurting. Does anybody know if this is true, what has been your experience, and do you know how long it will take till I am all better? Also does it make sense that pelvic pain (low pelvic pain, sometimes all the way down) could be related to the constipation? I am a 26-year-old female BTW.
hello and welcome. I had similar problem to you as i used to have abdominal and back pain as i suffered irritable bowel syndrome which my doctor said is stress related. I was constipated for 4 out of 7 days and then normal soft stools. Im from uk and was put on colifac and that reduced the spasms from my intestine. The other medical name was mebevarine. I changed to a good fibre diet and with the medication found in few weeks things settled down.
hope this has been some help to you as its a horrible condition. Fruit vegetables and whole grain was what i stuck too and prevents hemarroids caused by constipation as well as 6/8 glasses of water and this keeps stools softer.
