Resources for Constipation

Constipation

Constipation means being unable to move your bowels, having to push harder to move your bowels, or moving them less often than usual. Constipation happens when you get less exercise, or when you eat and drink less than usual. Some medicines cause constipation.

Constipation and Chemotherapy

Be sure to drink plenty of fluids to help loosen the bowels. If you do not have mouth sores, try warm and hot fluids, including water, to help provide relief from constipation symptoms.
