Suggest treatment for severe constipation

My friend wants me to you ask you this because she is embarrassed she is 13 years old and she needs the poo but she has been on holding it in for three days because when she tries to poo it really hurts and she wants to know how to get it out quickly and easily. Hope your reply.

thank your for posting query@HCM.

acute history of severe constipation.

i advice you to visit treating physician or surgeon to rule out any severe issues if she is feeling severe pain to pass out stool.

however, your friend may also follow these advice:
- in morning, drink hot (warm) water mixed with 7 to 11 lemon drops on empty stomach to aid in bowel movement (continue for 7 to 10 days)
- thrice daily , take two tea spoon (or one big spoon) ispagula with 200 to 300 mL water
-warm water intake as much as possible
-eat plentiful "fresh oranges" and "pear "
hope this works.

further advice:
- eat fiber rich meals
- avoid COLD milk and AVOID junk food(NO burger , pizza) altogether
- avoid beverages / alcohol/ soft drinks

hope the bowel movement would be normal.
if no resolution of symptom after following above advice, then visit gastroenterologist.

any further questions are welcomed.

hope to answer your concern.
