I have been constipated for 15 years and I vomit after every meal. I eat fiber, fruit, and vegetables, but it doesnt help. I dont have a eating disorder, and the vomit doesn't come up painfully and uncontrollably. If this help, i did have to have surgery when i was younger, because of a blockage in my stomach. I am 15 years old. Can anyone help?

Hello and thank you for your post on e health forum.

From the description of your symptoms, it seems that you have chronic constipation, probably as a result of slow intestinal motility.

To rule out any persistent issues slowing the intestines, a consultation with a gastroenterologist and intestinal motility studies can be of help in diagnosis of your condition.

I hope this helps.
