Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello,Thank you for your question.I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.Since when are you having this issue?Do you have any other symptom? pain abdomen, distension of abdomen, nausea or vomiting?
Can you pass flatus?
How is your diet? fiber intake?
I was waiting for your reply.I am sorry for your health condition. If you can pass flatus & do not have pain or cramp, swelling or distension of abdomen, it is unlikely an obstruction.High fiber diet, plenty of water, exercise are good to have soft stool. Leafy vegetables & fresh fruits, whole cereals should be taken. Plenty of fluid intake is important to keep the consistency soft. Metamucil or benefiber are fiber containing laxative available over the counter. Rectal suppository like dulcolax can be used.If you do not get relief by those measures, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.Enema may be needed.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
