Can constipation be so severe that a person wouldn't be able to walk? What actions should be taken? How much should family worry?
I have a daughter-in-law that is pregnant. I understand that constipation is a common side effect, but my son, her and their kids were scheduled to visit and she complained of not being able to walk due to her constipation so they were gonna be late in arriving. Is it even possible to get that constipated? Should she have gone to the hospital instead of coming to our house (we were 2 hours away on that date)? Am I just being too suspicious (she's earned my suspicious mind)? I feel as if she were just trying to control their arrival time (they arrived promptly when she said they would).
