Chronic Constipation

I used to have normal consitpation from last 4 - 5 years i.e. I never felt that my stomach is fully empty. I have tried everything from syrups advised by docs to churan/triphala available in market by patanjali. The thing i was recently diagonsed with pneumothorax (lung collapsed), i have now chronic constipation, few days before I was discharged i.e. its from around 4th June till date. I went to toilet 2 times since then very less amount of excretion was there. Because of all this, my hunger is approx killed. I need food to recover but m not able to eat much. Request you to please guide with a proper method to get me rid of this.
