Long-term Effects Of Difficult Bowel Movements?
Morning, I had a bowel movement that was not smooth, I have had this for a long time. I have never had a stomachache like this before, but recently I have frequent abdominal pain but still can’t poop (after 3 weeks or more).
Constipation or difficulty having a bowel movement can happen to anyone. In adults this can be caused by a diet that is lacking in fiber, consuming less water, the habit of delaying the desire to defecate to mental disorders such as depression. Whereas in children, in addition to an unhealthy diet, constipation can also occur when the child is practicing using the toilet (tolet training)
If the results of your ultrasound examination are normal, there is nothing wrong if you do other investigations such as X-rays of the abdomen because the visible structure of the two examinations can be different. besides, try to evaluate your eating and exercise habits or patterns. Your condition should be handled thoroughly, because normally a person experiences bowel movements more than 2 times a week.
If constipation is not handled completely, complications will arise, such as dry fecal buildup and blockage of the digestive tract, appendicitis, hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids to tearing of the anal skin layer due to straining.
In addition to seeing a doctor, steps you can take to overcome this complaint are:
increase the consumption of water and fiber foods
exercise regularly 2-3 times a week
do relaxation techniques to prevent stress
avoid the habit of delaying the urge to defecate
so hopefully it will be enough to answer yes
