Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You seem to be suffering from absolute constipation. If you are not even able to pass flatus, then you need evaluation for intestinal obstruction. I would advise you following:

1. To get a thyroid function test done as hypothyroidism might be the cause behind constipation that you are having.

2. To take Laxative like Lactulose in the night.

3. To increase fiber in the diet and to take fruits like Papaya which are bulk-forming.

4. You may alternatively take Cremalax in the night as you have been taking.

5. Another thing that you can take is Isabgulla Husk. You can take three teaspoons full in night time and as it is bulk-forming. It may help you with your constipation. In case you have already taken Creamalx and still not passing the stools, then Macrogol (Polyethylene Glycol) sachets help a lot.
