Causes of chronic constipation include neurological problems, obstructions such as colon cancer and diabetes. Rare cases of hirshsprings disease and acquired functional outlet disorder also can predispose to chronic constipation in adults. A GI doctor is very well suited to help you. I would ask your primary doctor for referral as 3 fleets I a day is severe severe constipation
