Bowel movements - is this normal?
How often is it normal to go? Why am I constipated in my senior years? When should I visit the doctor or nurse practitioner?
Dr. Didyk gives the scoop on bowel movements.
Note from Dr. Didyk - In the segment on when to see a health practitioner, I forgot to mention pain. If you have unusual pain associated with a change in bowel pattern, consider seeing your healthcare provider. As always, this video should not be used for medical advice, see your provider or call 911 if you are having an emergency.
