This has been ongoing for me.:(  Honestly, the best thing that's helped is suppositories.  My doc suggested doing it twice a day no matter what.  It seems to help unclog that initial plug or blockage and then I can finally go some.

But you can also take Miralax safely--it disolves completely in hot liquid.  Stool softeners and milk of magnesia are fine.  You may try that Activia yogurt, too?

I'm sorry for your pain--I can totally relate!
