Specialist: See the GI specialist for full work-up and blood work. Months is far from acceptable. May be other things going on that must be identified/diagnosed and treated. Make that appointment right away. Good Luck.

See a GI doctor: Sometimes a constipation it is a sign of serious disease, so it is very important that you see a gastroenterologist.
