Constipation after MRE,MRI

MIchael had and MRI!MRE this past Sunday, and he had to drink that barium sulfate, he did great, but after the tests he became gassy, and constipated, he has not gone the the bathroom and poop since yesterdY, he does have the urge but only gasses and very small amount of mucus. He was going to the bathroom at least 4times a day. And now 0. Should I called his dr. Or wait. Should I give him miralax, he drank water after the test. I'm not that concern since this might help his anal fissures heal. Little since he is not going to be bathroom that often. But he is worried.

I hope your son has started moving his stools. If he hasn't had one by today, I would recommend a call into GI or use Miralax at the very least.

This always happens top Grace.
I now just give miralax when we get home.
I'm glad it worked.
