    Hope this makes you laugh - but, what a nightmare I've had this afternoon.

    I finally felt this afternoon as though I might be able to relieve my constipation.

    Head to the bathroom... sit on the toilet and... Disaster! :oops:

    I couldn't go... but worse... it got stuck half-way! (half-in, half-out) :oops:

    So I sit there, trying not to panic.

    I push... it moves down a few millimetres. I relax... it goes back to where it started.

    I strain... it doesn't make any difference, and the same thing happens.

    45 minutes of panting, sweating, turning red... and still I haven't managed a bowel movement.

    I finally went after an hour - to huge relief - but dreading the next one now!

    Can anyone relate?

    Hope this makes you laugh anyway! The things we go through!

    Arg, its awful! I had a very similar situation for about 2 weeks few weeks back.

    I upped my fruit intake, took lactulose regularly, cut down on refined carbs. Things are ticking over better now, but its hell when you get stuck like that.

    You can get glycerin suppositories from the chemist when things get really stuck like that at the bottom end - that was going to be my next move, found out from a friend about those beauties.
