Brief Answer:
Please follow. . . .

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking on HCM!
I read carefully all your concerns and I can say as follows :
1. the causes of constipation may be:
- low fiber diet
- low physical activity
- IBS.
- large bowel tumors.
2. Your symptoms are not typical for parasitic infection neither for tumor.
Otherwise to get a proper opinion you need to be examined with:
- colonoscopy
- fecal test for ova and parasitis
- abdominal ultrasound to rule out/confirm gallbladder issues.
3.Meantime I would suggest to :
-increase physical activity
- avoid unnecessary stress
- use plenty of water
-use fresh vegetable
- use olive oil 3 teaspoon per day
- use stool softener
Hope it was helpful to you!
