Constipated, pubic pain, prior bowel movement?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Exclude obstruction: You must be examined to exclude obstruction or stricture or other serious problem. Once this is done you must try to normalize your bowel movements, first starting with a stool softener along with fiber and roughage and adequate fluids. If not successful may progress to stimulants or osmotic agents.
