Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.

I am very sorry for her symptoms.
Constipation can cause bloating.
There are a few measures that she can take.
Please tell her to take plenty of fiber, fresh veggies, fruits.
She needs to take plenty of fluid too.
Those help in the movement of bowel.
Exercise is good to prevent constipation.
This helps in intestinal movement too.
Now, she can apply Bisacodyl suppository.
It would help in passing stool.
If the symptoms continue, i would advise to take an examination by doctor.
he can prescribe oral laxatives, enema.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.
If you are happy with my answer please click on 5 star rating so that I can get the credit for helping you.
Wish her healthy life.
Regards.

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.
