Our expert says:
If you have very soft stools, are bloated, and do not go regularly, you may have a spastic colon. One does not have to have a bowel movement every day - 3 times a week is quite normal. Thyroid hormones play an important role in constipation - are your blood levels normal? It may be worth your while to see a gastroenterologist for some tests (like a barium follow-through) to see if they can find a reason for the bloating and slow bowel action.
