Don't force yourself to do some high-intensity exercise. You should also pay attention to the time of exercising. You should start exercising 1.5 to 2 hours after eating to prevent blood from flowing to the extremities, causing insufficient blood supply to the stomach and affecting digestion.
If you have limited mobility, you can also stand or sit up more, so your bowel movements will be better than when you are in bed.

Do not rely on drugs, adjust diet and living habits

It is not recommended that people with constipation often use oral or anal plugs to help defecate, because it will cause dependence in the long run, and it will make the intestinal tract lose its ability to function normally. Patients should start with daily life, improve diet and living habits, exercise more, and develop the habit of going to the toilet regularly.
