Sorry you are having so much trouble.  As I suffer from similar problems, I can share.

I suggest avoiding dairy.  Take magnesium citrate tablets 500 mg every morning.  For times when you need to get movement started, you can use a glycerin suppository.  Avoid using ExLax often, but it is okay to use about 2-3 times a year.  If used too often it causes problems that will show up when you have a colonoscopy.  

You can try taking Metamucil every day, and you have a choice of mixing the powder with a glass of water or taking about 5 capsules with a glass of water.  The water is very important!  There is no guarantee this will work; you must decide whether it gives you comfortable movements or instead causes movements that are so large they can't pass.  It depends on your anatomy.

You could take aloe vera juice and see if that helps. Eating an apple a day is helpful for most.  You have to chew your food; you may have a spot in your digestive tract that is small, and your food has to be ground small to pass through.  Eat vegetables as they are the best kind of fiber, but chew throughly.  You may find eating prunes or drinking prune juice works.  

If these tips don't bring you complete relief, then write to me.  There are many things to try.  It is very important you don't allow this pressure to continue as it will cause nerve damage in your digestive tract.  If these things don't work, you definitely should see a gastroenterologist.  

It turned out I had Celiac disease but all the constipation from some other problem (the endoscopist could not get the scope through a tight twist, so nobody can see the problem area unless I have a CT scan), hid this very important condition that is supposed to cause diarrhea.  

Please don't be embarrassed.  Everybody has something that doesn't work right, and it is okay that your problem is in your lower digestion.  It is not your fault, but you may be able to regulate this with diet and supplements and tricks I know.  One trick I know that works for me is working outside, doing manual labor, lifting and bending, and also yoga / Pilates moves.

Male or female? I am possibly guessing female, and yes this is medically relevant.

Nevermind I saw the Ovarian Cyst part, sorry can't help.  I will take a jab though, you may be with child.

Did you miss the part where she had pelvic ultrasounds?  No, she's not pregnant.
