severe constipation! please help!

I have very severe constipation. it's like, I dont have difficulty to release stool when I feel I need to. but the problem is, I can't get the feeling of needing bowle movement. its been going on for a year. I have less than one bowle movement a week. But I eat very healthly. I eat 5 or 6 portion of fuits and vegetables per day. high fiber breakfast with soya milk. probiotic yoguart every day. 2 liter of water per day. I walk everywhere. and my eat time and sleeping time is very I really dont know what is wrong with me. i tried prune juice with warm water, and I tried dry figs...but none of them helped me. I m really!!!

Well it sounds just like my story. Have you seen a Gastroenterologist yet? You will probably have to have Colonoscopy done. I had one done myself, they still aren't sure what is wrong with me. Im going to see my third Gastro Dr. My intestines are lazy and zig zagged badly so nothing wants to move through. I bloat up so badly that I look like I am 4 months pregnant. Dulcolax laxatives when it gets really bad makes me go, but with severe cramping and nausea. I highly recommend you seeing a specialist. Just know you arent alone! My thoughts are with you

Re: severe constipation! please help!

hey thanks sister! thats very usefull information! I feel much better now as I thought my case is very rare and nobody really know how to deal with it.
I have heard about it, but it sounds a bit scary...but for the sake of my health, maybe I should go to get it done. I just heard from other people that in severe case I might have to have a part of my bowle removed...scary!!! I dont wanna go through any operation!!! did your doctor mention anything like that? well, i hope not...
