I have been constipated now for over a week and a half. Ive tried eating nothing but veggies, fruit and foods high in fiber. I only drink water and I have taken stool softners and still nothing! Im so miserable what else can I do?? My ob office is closed and has been since christmas and wont open till the new year im desperate! What else can I try??

Try fiber one bars, raisin bran or mini wheats, I went through the same thing and tried the same things as you and they did not work for me either! But those 3 things I listed worked pretty well, Idk if you're a coffee drinker but I've recently been able to start stomaching coffee again and it has made my bowels 100% better!

If you like prune juice, drink a little of that in the morning or a prune donut. just something to get your bowels to soften up each morning

I find if im having a hard time, i either go to mcdonalds and get fries or get a cappuchino from the gas station since both of those have always made me "go" shortly after eating/drinking it
