Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query.I think you have a great confusion about what you want to say:Constipation means inabi lity to pass motion but you say you have to go to toilet 5 to 6 times a day. And that you have tried Dulcolax, Liv 52 and Aciloc.I would suggest you the following:First of all get a consultation of a General Surgeon to have a clinical evaluation, physical examination and investigations to get the correct diagnosis and to continue treatment as per the findings.Stop taking any medicines on your own.After a 5-day course, it will be decided whether you need further investigations in the form of tests of :Blood, urine and stool; ultrasonography of the abdomen, CT scan and colonoscopy.Go ahead if you are interested to get a proper diagnosis and treatment to have normal life again.I hope this answers your query and clears the misconception.
