Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Does she have any abdominal swelling or pain?
If not, then probably her small food intake, and medications can interfere with bowel movement.
Gentle stool laxatives like senna tablets can be tried with metamucil as initial management.
If she develops pain or swelling, then further evaluation is warranted to rule out bowel obstruction.
