Just as the title says, it has been nine days and I haven't had a bowel movement. I have taken dulcolax for the last 4-5 days and I took one exlax about six hours ago. I am also keeping my fluids up, I do not want to dehydrate myself. The weirdest thing about it is that I have not felt like I needed to go, and I have had no discomfort in my stomach or abdomen. I know that not going for 9 days is not a good thing. Should I call my doctor and tell him?

Constipation is often caused by opiate based painkillers. For me, normal digestion resumed as soon as i'd been off pain meds for 48 hours.
