Hi, I am Gastro surgeon Dr. Satish Devakumar,

Stools thick and hard indicate very less water content in stool.

1. Kindly take plenty of water ( atleast 4 litre water /day).
2. Consume high- fibre diet such as green leafy vegetables,  fruits.
3. Exercise regularly.  Atleast 30 mins of brisk walking daily.
4. If still continue to have constipation,  try laxatives.
