Hello Fitri, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

UTI or urinary tract infection itself will not actually cause constipation (difficult bowel movements). On the other hand, people with chronic constipation have a higher risk of developing UTIs. This is because the accumulation of feces in the large intestine can cause pressure on the bladder and urethra (urinary outlet) so that urination is not smooth. Urinary excretion that is not smooth is what can cause UTIs.

If your parents just experienced constipation after being hospitalized for a UTI, the following are some possible causes of constipation experienced by your parents:

When hospitalized, your parents did not move (a lot of sitting and lying down) the food did not contain fiber. Your parents did not consume enough fluids (it could be due to lack of drinking or fever) side effects of certain drugs given

We recommend that you and your parents consult the condition of your parents with the doctor who treats them. If your doctor allows it, your parents can try to move more during treatment (eg walking around the room), eat more fruit, and increase fluid intake. You can also ask if certain medications your parents are taking have constipation side effects. Your parent's doctor can also prescribe certain medications that can help soften the stool and help the stool pass.

That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
