No: If a person pooped everything she ate, all of her food and drink would run right through her, and she would quickly die of dehydration, even before she has a chance to die of malnutrition.

Why do doctors say to drink lots of water when you are constipated, doesn't it just make you feel more bloated?

Make sure you take a powerful acid blocker (prilosec/prevacid) to avoid acid damage on the esophagus (and cancer!). Good luck! ...Read more

If no relief, see your doctor. ...Read more
