My 84 year old mother is constipated. Doctor sent her

My 84 year old mother is constipated. Doctor sent her to have a test that shows weather your bowel is pushing out. She could not get the balloon to come out while pushing. Since the test last Thursday she has not been able to go. She called doctor on Friday. No response. She is in pain and her stomach is gurgling. How do I help her?

Hello Doctor, My 1.7 year old son is having constipation problem from last 3-4 months. I had consulted with both alophathy and homeopathy doctora but the problem is not resolved. Below are some of his symptoms which are being observed in him: 1. Crying and shouting loudly during bowel movement. He use to go after 2-3 days, due to which the stool becomes hard. 2. Mother feeding had been stopped by him after 4-5 months of his birth, then we started to feed him via bottle, but now he don t drink milk. We use to feed him while he is sleeping. 3. His intake diet is also not proper, he use to eat couple of bits of chapati or other things. 4. He never cry or shout when he feels hungry, usuall kid use to cry or shout whenever they are hungry. Me and my wife both are worried about his health, we are afraid if anything serious happens to him down the time. Also, no doctor has asked for any tests. They just tell us this is a common problem in majority of kids of this age. I request you to please provide your valuable inputs and suggest us next course of action to get rid of his problem. Thanks
