Thanks for writing to us.
The abdominal soreness and bruises are due to excess of abdominal bloating
and distension leading to overstretching of abdominal wall.
The abdominal pain
is almost always due to stimulation of stretch receptors as the coils of intestines are very sensitive to distension and stretch.
You are developing incomplete bowel obstruction and evacuation with laxatives.
Kindly get an abdominal X-Ray
/USG abdomen/Fibrooptic Colonoscopy
to rule out intestinal obstruction
whenever an acute condition occurs in future.
Be on regular high fibre diet.
Consult a qualified Surgical Gastroenterologist at the earliest please.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
