Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Did he have diarrhea? How old is he? How tall is he? How much does he weigh? When did it start? Is it consistent? Any other symptoms? Is he aware of anything which might triggered it? Does anyone around him have similar problem? Any medical problem? Any surgeries? Any medications? Any family history?
Is it normal stool? Small or large? Can he have a bowel movement right after the bowel movement? How many bowel movements does he have a day?
Any family history like cancer?
Does he change his diet?
Does that mean he is constipated? How often does he have a bowel movement a week? How tall is he? How much does he weigh? Any weight change? Does he have difficulty adjusting to cold temperature compared to people around him?
That means not every day. He should eat a lot of vegetables and fruits containing enough fibers and drink a lot of liquid. Walk fast every morning before breakfast. You may take Metamucil if he doesn't take enough vegetables and fruits. If it doesn't work, he should take MiraLax. If it still doesn't work, he should see his doctor and refer a GI doctor to have an exam such as colonoscopy.
Metamucil contains fibers. Miramax is laxatives. I think he is a little constipated. Another thing is he should go to the rest room soon when he wants to evacuate.
That means he feels stool is still in the bowel. It is constipation. He should try the method I mentioned above.
You are welcome. Take care.
