Hi. I've been trying to have a regular bowel movement for the past few days and I've not been able to. On Friday (5/19/17) I had to go to the hospital because I couldn't take the pain of my stomach. So since Thursday I've been having problems using the restroom and they had me take a magnesium laxative and I did and I was stuck in the restroom for an hour and it stopped for a bit and had to go again the same day; so a couple of times and I was really in pain :( Sunday early morning around 5am I had to go to the hospital again so idk what's going on. On Tuesday 5/23/17 around 8ish my boyfriend and I stopped at the store to buy prune juice because I heard that it helps for your constipation. I took a glass of 80z and I didn't know how long it takes to adjust so I thought it wasn't working so we ended up stopping at Walgreens and getting miralax but an hour passed by and I had to go so I didn't end up taking miralax lol. I guess the prune juice worked and I had diarrhea and the same night I felt like I needed to go but again it didn't want to come out so I took miralax, but the cheap one the pharmacy recommend me to get well at Walgreens "smooth lax", I followed the instructions as follow and it REALLY didn't help but I know she mentioned that it takes about 3 days. And yesterday 5/24/17 I've been trying to have a regular bowel movement and nothing happened. I couldn't even sleep well. So NOW it's 7:37am on 5/25/17 and I'm about to drink a glass of 80z of prune juice and my question is do I need to drink it warm or cold? I have it kept in the fridge so idk if i should be drinking it room temperature or while it's cold. What do you recommend?? Anyone please help. And also what should I be doing? I heard every morning drink prune juice...

Yes, prune juice has been used for years, other high fiber foods and supplements may also help, according to FDA reports.

Are you on any other medications? What types of foods do you usually eat? Both can contribute to constipation, or make it worse.

And no, the temperature of the juice doesn't matter.

Okay I was actually starting to drink prune juice every morning but I had another question can u drink prune juice before eating or after or during ?? And okay I actually have it in the fridge and when I serve myself I wait a while but you said it don't matter right? And I don't take other medications I only took miralax that one time but i still havent poop regular!!!!!! and so far I've been eating progresso soup and eating oatmeal in the mornings not all time and a little bit of applesauce, orange juice here and there and fruit but last night I eat little bit of fast food like Chinese food from panda and a bowl of cereal so I eat a little bit I been having problems swallowing foods :( so maybe that's why I've lost weight.. And another thing is can u drink milk when u having constipation or diarrhea??? I want to be able to gain weight again I use to weight 93 or 95 and now I weight 76 or 77 goes down and up ...
