Constipation 72 y.o.: Consider prune juice-2-3 glasses / day, prunes, milk of magnesia 1 table spoon 2x a day x 4 days, also consider Miralax, (polyethylene glycol) half the dose -only if sure no obstruction, massage, abdomen and walk, glycerin suppository may also help. Would decrease fiber today as can cause more impaction. In 72 year old would follow up with doctor and get CT make sure no obstruction also check TSH/ T4 f/u/ w/ doc
