Suggest treatment for constipation

I am a male, 27 years, vegetarian. I was having constipation 2 days ago and saw blood in my stool. This because of a wound near the anus. I started taking Isabgol (phyllum husk). It still is hurting but not to that great extent. There still seems to be some constriction. What medication should I take?

Hi,

You need a multipronged strategy to stay healthy.

Take plenty of fluids and have a habit of morning exercise but light. Take the fiber-based diet and avoid consumption of meat-based products. Take fresh fruits like apples, pears. You also take isabgol which you are taking. In one or two days it will relieve.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. SOHEEL HUSSAIN ZARGAR,

Hello Doctor, My father, 58, came from India to Germany 1month ago. He is having trouble of not having motion since 3days. It never happened to him. I see no major change in his diet except lack of physical exercise here. I asked him to take plenty of water, but no use. He is complaining about little stomach upset. Please suggest some tips to solve his problem. Thanks

Dear doctor, I am a 74-year-old female, 172cm tall, weighing 67kg. Two years ago I was diagnosed with colon cancer, had major surgery twice and spent a total of 3 months in hospital. In Sept. 2010 I had abdominal hernia repair. I have been constipated ever since the second operation. This was kept under control by using various kinds of over-the-counter laxatives. In the last few months the condition has become much worse, impacted faeces most likely. Strong laxatives and Movicol (macrogol) no longer work. My GP recommended daily consumption of oat bran soaked in milk and mixed with psyllium husk. This worked for almost 3 weeks, but now I can only have bowel movements by taking sodium picosulfate powder, which results in watery stools. - I would be most grateful for any suggestion. Many thanks!

Hi I'm 28 and 16 weeks pregnant and its my first baby. I usually get constipated very easily and in pregnancy it has worsen. I'm using Isphagul (pure psyllium husk) mixed in water and now i'm having a bowel movement every alternative day. That's some how fine, but now I have a severe pain while passing stools and sometimes it bleeds. Its painful for the next 3 to 4 hours and then the pain disappears but the pain is too much and I cant bear. Hence I started using Xyloproct and Betadine ointments in that affected area. Is it good to use these ointments during pregnancy? If not please suggest some alternative and help.
