OBGYN Dr. Rhea Chanda's  Response
At 65,you have severe constipation and hard stools.There could be a obstructive cause to this.There could be a recurrence of the polyp or another mass etc.For that,first a rectal exam needs to be done.Then another colonoscopy might be needed.Also a contrast xray may be needed depending on what you doctor finds.If you are waiting to see the doctor,try using a laxative/stool softner for a few days.If no improvement,then an intervention is needed.
