It makes absolutely no sense to eat gas causing foods when you are constipated. It will just build up in the intestines and cause severe pain.

I believe that because of chronic constipation that was treated for almost 3 years with laxatives, it has caused nerve damage, and my colon is not working right. I am upset that my doctor let it go so long with constantly having me take stool softeners, laxatives, everything, even mineral oil. I also had a hysterectomy because they felt that a fibroid was pressing against my bowel. More trouble and no relief. I am disgusted.
