My formula supplemented baby does not poop for weeks

Help!! I started supplementing with formula in the hospital itself due to low milk supply (excessive loss of blood) and after passing meconium, my LO started passin 1 mustard coloured poop per day. When we went home, even that stopped. We have gone through 8, 8, 9, 13 (in that order) day stretches between poops. I've tried adding prune juice to every feed, I've tried the thermometer trick, I've even tried coloxyl..., but don't see the point..his stools are already soft when they do come out. The doctor does not think its a problem because his belly is not distended, he does not vomit, has no anal fissures etc... But he's is very uncomfortable and in pain by Day 7. He loses his appetite and its jus really painful to watch him suffer. Someone please help.
