Welcome to HCM and thanks for posting your query here.
refers to passing of hard stools or infrequent passage of stools. As such constipation is not a disease it is a symptom. There are so many underlying causes for constipation. Low fibre intake, low intake of fluids, dieting, medications like opium, antidepressants, and some disease conditions like hypothyroidism
, celiac disease
, irritable bowel syndrome
are some of the causative factors.
Please check it out in which category you will fall. Scar in the appendix
removal is not related to the constipation.
An increase in the dietary fibre like raw vegetables, leafy vegetables will improve the constipation. Regular exercise, proper intake of fluid, dieting under doctors guidance will rule out the constipation. These are some of the home remedies
. But it is advisable to rule out the cause for constipation.
If you are on any new medications ask your doctor about its side effects. A blood check with thyroid assay will help you in diagnosing thyroid abnormality. Celiac or IBW can be diagnosed with colonoscopy
. Straight away there is no need to go for a surgery. I told you constipation is a symptom and not a disease.
Please visit a gastro who will guide you in the right way.
Hope this helps to you.
