Painful Constipation Purgative
Not enough fluids: Fiber be it dietary or supplemental should be thought of as concrete mix from home depot.

What is the remedy for a blocked fallopian tube. Are there no purgative or fertility cleans that could flush or dissolve the blockage?
Depends: Where it is blocked, and why it is blocked. Some blockages can be opened by running a tiny wire through the blockage, some might require cutting out the blocked portion and anastomosing the ends...Still others might be opened at the far ends with surgery. Ivf is also a good solution for pregnancy in most of these cases too. ...Read more
Fluids and fiber: The colon recycles water from the intestine. The more water in the intestine the softer the stool at the other end. Less water harder and dryer stool.

Yes: If you have painful hemorrhoids, you certainly could be avoiding bowel movements - or putting them off! the problem here is that the more you delay, the more likely you are to become constipated. This, in turn, makes stool harder to pass - and hemorhoids are more likely to bleed or hurt. A good strategy is to eat plenty of fiber and drink plenty of water so you don't get constipated. Good luck. ...Read more

Talk w/ the provider: I would definitely talk to the doctor who did your procedure about how to deal with this and how to prevent future constipation. I'm sure that drinking lots of water will be part of the plan, but there might be special advice too. Call as soon as possible. It will feel so much better. ...Read more
