If you have experienced difficulty with constipation for several weeks or longer, or your constipation has become severe, we highly recommend that you make an appointment with TransSouth Health Care. If you are only having three bowel movements in a given week, you may be experiencing chronic constipation. Excessive straining, lumpy or hard stools, feeling a blockage that is preventing bowel movements, or having to use your hands or fingers to remove stool from your rectum are all symptoms of chronic constipation.
Although some patients try to treat constipation with over the counter medications or natural remedies found online, there are concerns with not involving a gastroenterologist. Schedule your consultation with TransSouth Health Care today.
