Hello, I'm in serious need of help. I've been having symtoms of constipation on and off for the past 5 years, and my last bowel movement was 3 weeks ago. The stool itself was nearly 2 weeks old, and the bowel movement was more painful than usual. The pain has scared me into not going for 3 weeks, and I've had times where I haven't gone this long before, and I've had no problems, but this time I'm not sure.
My parents won't help me, and my mom is scared out of her mind that I might make my colon burst or crap out my own intestines and die a slow painful death.
I'm terrified, and I need help and answers.
How do I fix the constipation?
Should I actually be worried about bursting my colon or crapping out my intestines?
Is there a way to train my body to go on a regular basis after being used to consipation for so long?
Please help, I really appreciate it.
