I'm constipated. I was able to use lube on my finger to enter my rectum. I pulled out several hard pellets. I did not get them all because they went far up. What does this mean?

It means constipated: You shoud increase fluid intake, fibers such as fibercon/metamucil/benefiber/senokot and more roughage such as fresh fruits and veggies. Try to make bm every day at about same time, and don't hold your urges too long--go when you feel you have to go. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) or milk-of-magnesium will help for first few days. If not better, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
