JD, your drs are correct about being able to pass gas. Sorry, I don't think this is what you want to hear, but it's true. Laxatives are not the answer for controlling constipation, in fact a person can become dependant on them. Avoid foods that cause constipation, an internet search at a reputable website would be a good place to start. I would also speak to your pharmacist about something you can take OTC to help soften your stools. Most of all remember the colon is made up of water, it's important to stay well hydrated.
