    Good evening, by constipation, I hope u mean inability to pass stool and in this case, I advice you to take lots of vegetables and fruits eg oranges to help aid bowel movements. This would also help with the bloating. You should also in the meantime, try to avoid milk and milk products and also beans till you feel better. Laxatives like bisacodyl can help if all else fails. The presence of a uterine fibroid has no correlation with your current state and I advice you see a doctor with the results of the scan to discuss appropriate management concerning it but please put your mind at rest as most fibroids are not symptomatic thus, pose no problems. Take care now.
