You may have a problem with the nerves of the colon. Sometimes one has to "train" a sick colon to go regularly. Try taking fybogel orange twice a day with a full cup of tea/any other hot drink and try and drink 8 cups of fluid per day. Put a gliserine suppository in the rectum every 2nd morning for 2 weeks and make time to go and sit on the toilet for a while. Try and get some exercise daily - walking for 15-20 mins is fine. If nothing happens in 3 days, give yourself an enema - one gets a enema gadget at the pharmacy that looks like a lightbulb with a thin plastic spout - use luke warm water, and try to keep it in for a few minutes before going to the toilet.
