Hi all: someone mentioned the gastrocolic reflex which apparently gets going when food or liquid (such as coffee is ingested) and causes peristalisis and a BM; well, I have been constipated for many years now and the gastrocolic reflex is absolutely dead; I do go a little when I get up in the morning but food or coffee never ever gets things going. Could someone please explain the Gastrocolic reflex to me and why it croaked-I really don't think(after 15 years of constipation it will ever come back). thanks
