The solution and treatment for chronic constipation usually starts with diet and lifestyle changes meant to increase the speed at which stool moves through the intestines. Increasing the fiber intake can relieve constipation. Adding fiber to your diet increases the weight of your stool and speeds its passage through your intestines. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables each day and eating whole-grain breads and cereals can be helpful. Drinking more water is also considered to be helpful to treat constipation. Increasing the intakketPhysical activity increases muscle activity in your intestines and so it is important to fit in exercise most days of the week. A wide range of prescription medications is available to treat chronic constipation. Lubiprostone (Amitiza) and linaclotide (Linzess), work by drawing water into your intestines and speeding up the movement of stool. Relaxing your pelvic floor muscles at the right time during defecation can help you pass stool more easily. Surgery might be an option if the treatments taken have not worked and if the chronic constipation is caused by a blockage, rectocele, anal fissure or stricture. For people who have tried other treatments without success and who have uncommonly slow movement of stool through the colon, surgical removal of part of the colon may be an option. Surgery to remove the entire colon is rarely necessary. If medicines have not worked, then the doctor would refer you to a specialist for further examination and tests.
