Is she impacted? In some cases, the stool becomes so hard due to medications, and diet, that it has to be removed, either manually, or by surgery, if nothing else works, according to NIH studies.

What other medications is she on? There are many that the FDA warns can cause constipation, so if they are giving her a couple that cause it, it could be worsening the issue.

What does her normal diet consist of? Does she get an adequate intake of fluids and fiber? Not taking in the proper foods could also cause such a problem.

How long has this been going on?
