Hello, thanks for contacting HCM with your question.
I am not sure whether your husband developed this
acutely or he has had periodic problem with constipation
If he seems to be chronically constipated , he needs to go
on a good bowel regimen. This consists of a high fiber diet,
with whole grain cereal daily along with fresh fruits, vegetables,
nuts and plenty of fluids. Proper exercise like walking daily
would be helpful. He can stay on a stool softener
once a day if
the stool is very hard. A PEG solution (Polyethylene Glycol
daily can relieve constipation if taken according to the instructions.
Present watery stool may indicate some impaction
higher up in
the bowel with hard stools.Wish him well.
