Prunes work for many. Metamucil may help too, but at this point of 5 days and no bowel movement, you should probably seek medical attention unless you've been on a liquid diet. You can't afford to find yourself bound-up where you need a medical procedure to unbind you.

Are you eating enough fiber? It's fiber, not water that keeps your bowels moving as they should.

Add a little bit of fiber to your daily diet to prevent another situation like this :). I'm sure you've got better things to do than spend a day on the toilet.

Go with Randy1 suggestion. Without a word of a lie, I poop every 10 to 12 days. I crap for 3 days in a row and that's it until the 10-12th day. I have a weird Bowel condition, lots of polyps, have to have them cut out every 12 to 18 months. If I could crap every 5 days, I would be a happy man..

Just go to the drug store and pick up a couple Fleet's enemas. They have mineral oil in them and will enable you to void after only a few minutes. They are only about two dollars each and everything you need is in the box.
