You've been given great advice....there is a really good product and very cheap called Yerba Prima Daily Fiber that you can take daily. The best way to start your day is with a 24 oz. glass of room temperature water as soon as you get up. This will help to flush the toxins that have been released during sleep and shortly after will prompt a BM (it may take some effort to get in the habit of doing this but once you do it happens naturally despite pain meds). Our sleep cycle is our healing cycle ( I worked alternative Medicine for 21 of my 35 yr working career and heard this over and over by many of the worlds CA specialists). Water is crucial to health as are OILS. I take 6,000 mg. of Fish oil every day, this helps inflammation and also acts as a lubricant to our joints, organs, skin and brain function. Olive Oil added to our food especially salads is another great way to keep our colons moving. You can also add Olive oil to cooked foods just be careful cooking with Olive Oil at high temps, it turns rancid. Coconout Oil, grapeseed oil and Avocado oil are great to cook with.
Veggies, cooked or raw definitely help keep things moving as well. Avocado's contrary to what you think are very very healthy, full of protein and natural oils!
Hope this helps!!
