Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically the cause of constipation in colostomy patients is the same as ordinary patients. Constipation can be caused by lack of fiber intake, lack of fluid consumption, or lack of physical activity. Constipation can also be caused by other things such as excessive consumption of milk and dairy products, excessive consumption of processed foods, side effects of medicines, blockage of the intestine, slowing intestinal motion, adhesions in the intestine, intestinal innervation, and so forth.


Here are some things your father can do:

Eat more fibrous foods (vegetables, fruit, nuts, etc.)
Drink enough water (at least 2-3 liters a day)
Keep on doing as much physical activity as possible (don't just sleep, sit or lie down)
Consuming fruits such as pears, peaches, prunes or juice from these fruits can also help overcome constipation
Reduce consumption of coffee, alcohol, tea or other soft drinks

If your father's doctor prescribes laxatives for your father, take the laxatives according to the rules given. Excessive and prolonged consumption of laxatives can also cause constipation in patients.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
