    No bowel movement in... 5 days / when will it get dangerous?

    Today, I asked the school nurse who hailed a Thai colleague from our English Dept. Rather embarrassing... The nurse gave me something to drink with "Stomach" written on the bottle.

    When is this going to become some kind of an urgent issue?

    It might be time to try self-medication!

    Chris

    P.S. I sat around for about 40 hours for a B-Visa run to Vientiane...

    It already is...go to the doctor/hospital...

    Bran and suppositories. An olive oil milkshake is good too.

    Soon all types of nasty shit (literally) might start leaking back into your system. Seek help ASAP and maybe make some dietary changes. Good luck!!

    How odd in Thailand. Normally it's the runs for a month. Perhaps whatever/wherever you've been eating could help farangs with the runs, kinda negation of both ills. Once you're cured post an ad somewhere for anti-runs dietry advice for uncomfortable newbie farangs. Set up a paypal donation system and sit back and watch the money trickle in. It's called passive business. A bunch of 20, 30 somethings were at it in Bangkok during the unrest in 2010. They have all kinds of BS websites all centred on 'getting laid, getting paid and getting healthy' or ripped or other such crap.

    Um, but don't take this post too seriously

    Could've done with that today. Mere words cannot describe the horror, yes the horror, of the explosive episode I had in one of the stalls at the Esplanade shooping centre. Tried to clean up but even then it wasn't pretty

    Thank Allah for the bum gun!!! OP, get yourself to a doctor. Get a prescription to get that going. Once you're 'clear', start eating more raw veggies, fruit, and drink lots of water. Green tea is good for keeping your system clean too.

    ---Update---

    I think OP posted on the weight-lifting thread. Are you maybe getting too much protein at the expense of other things? Just an educated guess, forgive me if wrong!!

    First of all, make sure you did not eat anything that could have caused a serious blockage (guava pit, tonk a truck, that kinda thing!) - then, get yourself bags and bags of dried, pitted prunes. Pick up some prune juice too. I hope you like that stuff, some people don't. You can also pick up some salts (usual epsom salts) that help you "go", but the prune solution is usually best.

    Generally, according to an internist I saw for something similar years ago, you can up to 10-12 days before it's cause for concern. I disagree. I'm with you and would consider 5 days to be reason to worry.

    I did the prune juice solution, and pretty much 6-8 hours after injesting two bottles of juice and 3 bags of prunes, I ended up retiring for a number of hours to the porcelain throne. I felt very cleansed upon exiting ;-)

    didn't you post something similar a day or 2 ago, only last time it was also shit on the walls?? You might want to get someone to look at that for you (not the walls... the walls will be fine)
