Results from taking castor oil for constipation?

I went to the doctor because I was having severe pains in my abdomen. He did an ultra-sound because he wanted to rule out cysts, return of endo, and scar tissue...well, it turns out I was severely constipated (again) but didn't go to the ER this time (didn't know it was constipation until they did a scan). I've been going a bit each day so I didn't think I was that backed. Well, castor oil was suggested but I only took 1/2 of the recommended amount. I did have a bowel movement within 6 hours and then nothing for nearly 24 hours and now I am feeling my gut moving and passing a lot of gas. It's not really painful or anything but It's about 48 hours since I took the castor oil and I am wondering if it can still work this late after taking it.

Speckla,
While I've never used castor oil for constipation, I have used other things and sometimes whatever I take can make me go for days and days. Not sure if that is normal or not as my system is not the norm. Check with your doctor and see what he/she says.

Well, I'm done (literally). I had some gas but nothing too bad. I went about 5 times today. Not diarrhea and no pain.
