Diagnosis

Although chronic constipation can be analyzed with the help of physical examination by the doctors and the symptoms thereof, still there are some medical tests which are undertaken such as:

  • Blood Tests
  • Sigmoidoscopy
  • Colonoscopy
  • Anorectal Manometry
  • Balloon Expulsion Test
  • Colonic Transit Study
  • Scintigraphy
  • Defecography
  • MRI Defecography

Procedure

  • Laxatives: Doctors may prescribe various laxatives which may include Fiber Supplements Stimulants, Osmotics, Lubricants, Stool softeners, Enemas and suppositories, Glycerin or bisacodyl suppositories.
  • BioFeedback/ Training your pelvic muscles: In this process, the therapist will make you learn to relax & to tighten the muscle of the pelvis. It will eventually help the stools to pass easily through the rectum.
  • Electrical Stimulation: It will help to activate the muscles and nerves of the pelvic floors. It is the most effective way to help the stools pass on easily.
  • Surgery: STARR (Stapled Trans-anal Resection of the Rectum) for the Obstructed Defecation Syndrome is one of the commonly done surgical management to treat chronic constipation.
