Constipation/weight gain/tortuous colon
is there any treatment that`s recommended for weight gain & constipation due to a tortuous colon?
A colon can be tortuous and have normal motility. Constipation needs to be defined by an expert, who can methodically evaluate your colon and pelvic floor, then offer therapy aimed at the root of the problem!
