Stomach rumbling, constipated, bloating, cramps. What are the symptoms?

For the past five days my stomach has been persistently rumbling, during the same period my stomach is bloated and I m suffering from constipation . Only once have I been able to go to the toilet, when after much struggle I produced two small balls of stools . Although I about two months ago for a period of three weeks I have consistent stomach [mostly lower abdomen] pains, this is the first time in my life that I have experienced the above [I m 65 years old.] Please advise me as to the likely cause[s]

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Recent change in bowel habits at this age warrant colonoscopy examination to rule out any malignancy. However it may be normal but is should be done. Meanwhile take lots of fruits, vegetables and liquid in your diet. May add psyllium fibres. If not relieved then take a laxative like syrup cremaffin.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
