Doctor :   most common symptoms a person with constipation may experience are:
* Infrequent passage of stool
* Difficulty in bowel movement
* Bloated feeling in the stomach after a meal
* Feeling of incomplete evacuation
* General feeling of discomfort and malaise.
Doctor :   A diet with enough fiber (20 to 35 grams each day) helps the body form soft, bulky stool. A dietitian can help plan an appropriate diet. High-fiber foods include beans, whole grains and cereals, fresh fruits, and vegetables such as asparagus, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and carrots. For people prone to constipation, limiting foods that have little or no fiber, such as ice cream, cheese, meat, and processed foods, is also important.
