My mother is 64 years age and suffering from chronic constipation. She was hospitalized for weakness and after getting released for 1 week she is not passing stools. She feels like emptying her bowel but is just unable. She is taking medications to relieve constipation but no improvement. Instead she is becoming very weak and mentally upset. What can be done in such a case.
