  1. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Heyup, In a nutshell I've been unable to "go" unaided for about 10 years.

  2. General Discussion
    I am going to keep this real simple and straightforward. In other words, I am going to cut to the point. I can always add more information later anyways. I am a 23 year old male.

  7. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I have had really bad problems for eleven years now. Everything was fine up until that time, and then rather suddenly, I developed chronic constipation.
