I am having silent 13 mm stone in my gall bladder since last 20 years. No pain but chronic gas and constipation problem pl. Advise whether surgery.

Gallstone: As amazing as it it that this rather large stone hasn’t bothered you to this point, I can’t easily identify it as a cause for your gas and constipation. I think these are two separate issues. So I’m not sure that having your gallbladder out would help your gas and constipation. ...Read more

Gassiness: Can be from a variety of effects. Ignoring that they aren't FDA approved, are not reliably made, are not evaluated for whether their ingredients are stable over time, etc.

I am suffering from piles for a while and constipation for a long time. I have gas problems specially a bloated belly in the morning and after meals.

Take charge: The gut has its own nervous system. Yours has learned to be a reservoir rather than a pipe. You need to use your brain to retrain it with a good diet of fiber, fruits, liquids and milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) (30cc daily) to function better. Try for 15 minutes to evacuate after largest meal of each day. Then the hemorrhoids will go away and you will lower your risk of colon cancer. ...Read more

Fiber: When you change diets from one country to another, it's normal to experience some change in bowel habits initially. For constipation you can continue with your fruit and nuts and drinking 64 oz of water daily. You might also try adding a fiber supplement like benefiber or metamucil. If you go more than 3 days without a bowel movement or they're hard and pebbly still you should see a doctor. ...Read more
