Constipation is defined by bowel symptoms such as difficult/infrequent passage of stool, hardness of stool, or a feeling of incomplete evacuation, that may occur in isolation or secondary to another underlying disorder. A practical and simple definition of constipation, used by many patients, is a reduced frequency or ease of passing stools from what is the normal or expected pattern for that individual.
