Jhave had severe constipation for 3 months and lost 30 pds. Is there any help?
Hi @jgpg, 30 pounds in three months is certainly a lot of weight. While we wait for other members to join in, do you mind sharing a bit more information? Are you losing weight because you are not eating due to the constipation? What sort of things have you tried and has anything worked even a little bit? Has your medical provider offered any suggestions up to this point?

Hi @jgpg you may have noticed I add your conversation to the Digestive Health group so that more Connect members can see your post. Click VIEW & REPLY in your email notification to be brought to the post.
On Connect fellow patients provide tips and suggestions from personal experience. You mentioned that you can have your wife type out a reply and I think that is a great idea, as then other Connect members can take part in the discussion after learning more about you.
As Justin asked, do you mind sharing a bit more information?
