Constipation?: Constipation can be caused by diet (not enough liquid/fiber), medications (esp pain meds), hormonal problems (diabetes, parathyroid issues) and blockage (growth in the intestines or rectum). The green color is not as concerning. The renewed abdominal pain and swelling can indicate that you are constipated again. Try apple/prune juice to gently relieve symptoms. Add a probiotic and liquids/fiber.
