ever since about 6 months ago i've been chronic constipated. i was bed ridden for 4 months and ever since around that time it started with going to the bathroom but it hurting bad and stomach hurting after to not going at all. i drink prunes every night but about once a week i'll get constipated and have to take a laxative. i've been not bed ridden for about a month now and have went out a good 15 times since then but i still have the same problem. I'm really scared, what could be wrong with me? could it be the exercise, and if so wouldnt it have went away already since i have had exercise or would it take longer? i havent been to the doctor yet im really scared of what this might be.
