Treatment Conservative Treatment

Patients with PH and mild symptoms of constipation should initially be given conservative treatment, which includes (1) a high-fiber diet of at least 15 g per day and adequate water intake of 2000 to 3000 mL per day; (2) physical exercise (habit training is also very important for patients with PH); (3) bulk or lubricated laxatives, which can be given if evacuation is very difficult and painful, but stimulant laxatives should be avoided; and (4) puborectalis exercises in the knee-chest position, with contraction and relaxation of the puborectalis at least 500 times per day to help recover the elasticity of the puborectalis. According to these authors' experience, conservative treatment in approximately 200 patients with PH has resulted in significant symptomatic relief in 50%.
