Thank you for the quick reply.
As you are having severe constipation for 8 months with distended stomache & other symptoms,this needs to be treated accordingly.
In medical terminology,constipation is defined as less than three bowel movements per week. Severe constipation is defined as less than one bowel movement per week.
To treat your constipation,following is recommended for you:
- Take bulk-forming laxatives like Metamucil.
- Take Milk of magnesia.it contains magnesium hydroxide.Magnesium hydroxide is used as a laxative to relieve occasional constipation (irregularity) and as an antacid to relieve indigestion, sour stomach, and heartburn.It's a type of laxative known as an oral osmotic; it works by drawing water into the colon from the body tissues surrounding it. This allows the stool to pass more easily.
- If this doesn't help then take stimulant suppositories containing bisacodyl (e.g. Dulcolax)can be used.
- Glycerol suppositories act as a 'stimulant' within the rectum, encouraging the passing of stools
To open your bowels naturally,you need to have some dietary changes.Fiber is one of the mainstays in the treatment of constipation.High-fiber foods include beans, whole grains and bran cereals, fresh fruits, and vegetables such as asparagus, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and carrots..You need to increase the quantity of fruits and vegetables as they contain lots of fiber.
And to treat symptoms of burping,stomach ache,gastric problems-take Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals.Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.Both these are available as over the counter (OTC)without a prescription & will help you greatly.
So bot***** *****ne is that I advise you to take the above described medications & follow the fiber diet as described.
If still after this,the symptoms persists or you have already tried these,then you need to make an appointment with your gastro doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatments.
Hope this helped.
