I Have Constipation

I Have Constipation

GI doctor said I have bloat ing due to bacteria in gut caused by not elimating poop. Has any doctor said that to anyone?

Doctors need to show they care for you.

Thanks. GI doctor just tells me to drink 8 glasses water and take Miralax everyday. She very religious so she prayed for me and gave me bible verses to read. Of course, I was crying in her office & she told me I needed to stop worrying & give it to the Lord. I do try but when 1 health issue leads to another and then another, it becomes too overwhelming!
