I have never suffered from consipation until last week. I had my gallbladder removed 10 years ago so it has been diarrhea never constipation. I went to the doctor since I did not have a bm in about 4 days and I also had abdominal pain. He said the xray said I was very constipated and to take fleet phos soda. I bought it and took it. I am not sure it is doing what it should. I took it 6 hours ago and I have went to the restroom 6 times, but it seems like it's just water and not a lot of stool. I was thinking I should have a ton of stool since it was 4 days. I'm confused.
