    This is going on 6 days--you definitely need to call your doctor. Call your doctor's office & speak to the doctor on call tonight, okay? The fact that you're in pain & nauseated is plenty to justify the call. If your doctor isn't available, go to the ER.

    Hoping you are feeling better soon---

      I waould agree, time to call the doctor. Those hydros, in my opinion, can disrupt the organs. Milk of Magnesia always works for me. Lets put it this way, in the military, not having a bowel movement for more than 3 days is a medical EMERGENCY! THats what my uncle tells me at least! I truly hope you feel better soon and your uro can help you. I will also pray that the hydro will help with your IC symptoms!

          Any time you have blood in a bowel movement, you should call your doctor. Please don't wait to see if it happens again --- once is too many times.

            You need to talk to somebody now. If your body is not eliminating wastes properly, you can end up sick REALLY fast from it.

            Are you taking any pain meds for the post hydro pain? Many pain meds - percoset, vicodin, ultram,... anything with narcotic type action - can cause constipation.

            You may need to take more drastic measures to get things moving properly - like a laxative/enema. Blood in a BM or urine is NOT something to wait on. Call your docs ASAP.
