Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!

You are reporting to have long term constipation.

The causes of your symptoms may be:
- inactivity and poor fiber diet
- IBS with constipation
- organic bowel issues like large bowel tumor.

At this situation I would recommend to do colonoscopy to rule out serious issues of large bowel.
Meantime I suggest to change life style like:
- use fresh fruits, vegetables
- use olive oil three teaspoon per day
- take plenty pf water 2,5-3 Lt per day
- use prune, kiwi
- increase physical activity
- take fiber packs
- stool softener if needed

Hope it was helpful to you!
