Thanks for posting your query.
If it is just contipation, a simple abdominal xray may not yield anything.
If you have long standing constipation, special xray tests like a colon transit time study may provide clue to understand the cause.
For relief from constipation, eat high fiber diet and drink lot of fluids.
