Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Stool quantity, consistency & frequency vary with the food intake.
As you passed stool whole day yesterday, the colon may be empty.
So you have not passed stool today.
One day constipation is not worrying unless you feel distension of abdomen, pain in abdomen.
Please take your regular food.
Take plenty of fluid.
It is possible that you will have movement tomorrow.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

Wish you healthy life.

I am 40 years old. I had mussels on Thursday afternoon and I felt sick about 2 hours after. Sharp pain in Lower abdomen. I had an incident about a year ago with mussels but forgot about it until I eat and remember the same pain. Last year went to the doctor and the same thing happened. Took magnesium citrate and I went to the bathroom the whole day yesterday. Very loose stool but I felt great. Now I don’t have any pain. I’m just concerned that my movement has not comes back. I am very regular. I eat last night meat and today salmon and in the morning some eggs. I’m just about to eat some broccoli to add fiber and water.
Health Professional: Dr. Su S, Doctor (MD) replied 3 months ago

Yes, you can take fiber.

Please take more fluid, water too.

As you do not have pain or any other symptom, please do not worry.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
