The superbowel is once a year!!
Spitbak , I used to work in a retirement home when during the night shift we had to give aid to an elderly man who was impacted as a result of not having a BM for one week / He learned to eat more veggies after that .
It kinda reminded me of an old joke about the farmer , The trained monkey and the super fat prize pig that exploded after the cork was removed .
I have IBS. I only go once a week. Has been that way for a long time. The only way for me to go is with a laxative. Believe me a week doesnt feel good but you can go longer than that without blowing up. lol
I went from Tuesday to Saturday on just an IV, no solids, in the ICU during heart surgery. I was thinking, " If I have to strain to do a BM, I will just croak or something!" Super painful with staples in my sternum!. Those of you who joke about this stuff have good humor, but if you get constipated for more than a few days, your descending colon can burst and dump into your body cavity...death without immediate surgery is imminent. And then it may happen anyway. Lots of water, and then lots of water, and then lots more water helps produce a soft stool. You won't believe the difference! The medical community is still debating about the type of diet that is helpful. Fiber is good for you but there is no proof yet on this subject.. Be well, my friends...
Once a day is the ideal- take a stool softener- there's no accomplishment in holding it back
I'm gonna take a long shot and say something like 4-6 days without eating and only drinking fluids.
LMAO!!.. naw man.. just used to be in the military :D
WOW!! Now that's a question?! I wouldn't go more than a week!! If you're having that much of a problem, PLEASE seek a doctor's advise, NOT THIS SITE's!! There's a whole lot of natural and over-the-counter remedies out there!! USE THEM, or else it could get EXTREMELY painful!! As a caretaker for an elderly couple, I once had to go up inside her to pull it out, bit by bit!!! She cried the whole time, but it had to be done!!
About 3 weeks in I found out I had a blockage and they said 2 more weeks I would have been dead ....So i am thinking maybe 4 to 5 weeks...If the pain don't kill you first...lol
my record is week but I was in a hospital and I didn't want to go poopy in a pan.
