My mum is suffering badly with constipation. She is very weak with the illness. She has stopped eating weeks ago she will have occasional food supplement. But last few days says she has constipation and feels full and uncomfortable? I have gave her lactulose as prescribed but not helping? As usual it's weekend and no GP available. Any advice would be appreciated. Don't understand how she can be constipated if not eating anything?

TIA Jan x
