Just do a search for "Constipation" and see how many posts you find.
Live your life each day
greet the tides my friend
we're all nomads; forever on our way
a journey to the end.

Outlook regarding medication is not as bleak, that's for sure!
Yes, chronic constipation and the issues that arise from such is what we're currently experiencing. Don't know from what yet.

Many people's C gets better just gluten-free, but not everyone. If you are in that position, keep posting. There are many here who can help. I have finally resolved mine, but not just gluten-free.
gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).
10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels

More recently (~past month) I have stopped eating wheat and consuming more butter and coconut oil in/with foods. I have been going every day except for a couple. I also feel less bloated and my clothes feel more roomy.
I did all the "right" stuff to no avail....exercise, fiber, water etc. but elimating wheat and adding fat has made such a difference. I also started eating less fiber (foods) as it seems to make my constipation worse. I still eat well though.
