Can constipation kill you? ?

I’ve been constipated for about three weeks now; I have a bowel movement four days a week. Does this mean I’m going to die?

    It certainly does!  Not the constipation,  but the cause (lack of insoluble fiber) that also causes build-up and foreign objects in your gut that aren't flushed end up as colon cancer.

    get an enema kit from the chemist. YOu fill it with water and attach to your rectum and pump the warm water in-works a charm.

    pooing 4 times a week is not a big deal.

    eat more fibre and get some more exercise if you want to do it more often

    Yes. Just wait for the sweet relief of death.

    No. Just buy some laxatives to get things moving and drink lots of water.
