HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand your problem over consciousness for the defecation, not passing the stool feeling of incomplete evacuation these are the factors most responsible for the chronic constipation again taking some medicine for the constipation make the condition more symptomatic, in my opinion you have to just forget about this stop trying every thing, eat more fibber diet, drink more water, need to go for defecation every day in a fix time no matter you have reflexes for this or you pass the stool or not but go there and sit for some time do not apply the force, hope this information helps you have nice day.
