... ileus symptoms but I have a low stabbing pain in my lower right abdomen
If you are having trouble with constipation it could be what you are feeling.
The peristalsis (movement of the colon to pass the stool in a wave-like movement) may be trying to push the stool. This is normal. However, if your stool is hard and dry it's trying to pass but cannot. You may need a stool softener regularly plus increase fiber. You need to get this resolved first. I would take a laxative if no BM in 2 days.
Go to the doctor.
Check your temp because fever is a sign that it may be appendicitis plus you are acutely ill.
You may have IBS or diverticulitis.
Or... a kidney stone is a long shot. It's usually an excruciating pain.
In any case, you need a doctor.
Dmb, I am with my friend on this but if you normally take the Bisacodyl and it says 5mg it is fine to take up to 3 when you are bound up drink a full glass of water and you should have your movement in 8 to 12 hours. But you have to find out why you need a laxative all the time a stool softener is much better and fiber so you should check with your doctor when you get this back to normal. good luck.
Stop trying to self diagnose yourself... go the ER have them do a CAT scan of the abdomen... today! I speak from experience... 11 years ago I was getting stomach disconfort, slow bowels dealt with it for a month with over counter stuff... finally went to Primary Care Doctor ..he ordered CAT scan... CAT Scan showed inflammed appendix, next thing I am on operating table, they found colon cancer in the small bowel at the illeus area . The tumor pushed itself into the appendix and pushed my appendix into one of my kidneys. Now your case is not mine... but stop diagnosing yourself and get to ER for Abdominal CAT scan.
