My hubby had a five inch fatty lump removed. There’s a lump even bigger two weeks after the operation that the general practitioner says is a hematoma. It’s got larger and his leg was black with bruising inches round the lump. Waiting to hear about having it drained. Conflicting information about whether he’d be okay to fly to New York from Britain.

My youngest daughter has been having constipation from early childhood even as we speak. She exercises every day, drinks lots of water, and eats lots of vegetables and fruits, especially apple, and she still not able to have a bowel movement. It is being very worrisome because she did go to a specialist who told her that she needs to do exactly what she is now doing.

I suffered from chronic constipation for almost 10 years, and to pass stool I had to insert suppositories. Last year August I went for a gastroscopy and the results show that I have no ulcers but my body secretes a lot of acid. I am very worried.

I eat small meals, don't exercise much because I am 85 years old, and take iron pills because of anemia as well as a variety of prescription medications. I also take 2 stool softener pills and a bulk fiber medication every day. I still have worsening constipation.

I don't have regularly formed stools anymore. When I wipe myself I can practically use a whole roll of toilet paper and still feel and see that I need to wipe more. Sometimes I wipe so much that I end up with a bleeding hemorrhoid. Very annoying!

I have been experiencing constipation for three days now. I have no appetite and my stomach feels tight.

I probably pass stools no more than twice a week. They are always hard and very large, as if feces just collects in my colon and I pass all of it at once. This is very painful.

I suffer from chronic constipation. My stool is very hard. If I don’t move my bowel in a week, I will lose my appetite and my stomach begins to protrude. I have to take a laxative to feel completely empty.

I’ve been constipated for about 4-5 days. When I try to go, only small bits come out.
