How long have you been constipated?

How often do you have bowel movement? Is it difficult to pass? Any blood or mucous in the stool? What is the shape of the stool? Is it hard and dry?

Any and all info is helpful to try and figure out what is going on.

Thanks, ***** ***** look forward to your response.
