Constipation with frequent BMs

Hi, I have bowl movements 4-6 times a day. They are easy to pass and I have no trouble with them. I was worried about the frequency, so I went to my doctor. They did an x-ray which showed I was extremely constipated. I am very confused because I thought constipated was not having bowl movements?

Hmm interesting man, constipation even after visiting the toilet so frequently. Dont you pass your stools properly then? There should be a problem with your intestines I guess, get it confirmed with your doctor.
