What should I do if laxatives don't work?!

Question: What should I do if laxatives don't work?
I broke my tailbone a few weeks ago and it has been very painful to use the restroom. I've been able to force myself and just deal with the pain but now I'm constipated and CAN'T go. It's been 4 days. 2 days ago I used 2 stool softeners. Yesterday I used some milk of magnesia which always works in 2-3 hours for me. I drink about 70 oz of water a day and eat plenty of fruit.. what can I do?? My stomach is killing me :(


Eat prunes or call your doctor. Hope it works out for you!

I remember my Mother was a great believer in mineral oil, but don't remember how much to ingest.

try prune juice
