Hi Janie, I have tried it and it did not work at all for me... however, since you are post op - maybe this is just the thing you need to help!? Cant hurt to try... I am hoping that after surgery - I will not need more then yogurt to keep things going.

I think I could eat a truckload of it and it wouldn't make a difference. My surgeon and GI doctor said it does fine for people with occasional consitpation but not for colonic inertia. I tried it for a month almost everyday.....NOTHING!

I agree with Jenise maybe it will help since you are post-op, but for us pre-op gals not so much.

prior to surgery i ate 2 every day for 2 months, one in the morning and one in the evening and it did NOTHING for me (how surprising), but maybe now that we're post op it can do the trick for us? i guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

when i say 'helped', i mean it slowed me down to maybe 7xday instead of 10, but I STILL had D. Plus it helped with the gas.

 Has anyone out there had this problem. I have a colonostomy. Ihave ha the bag for months now and all of a sudden my stool is very hard and dark and will not pass from the stoma. I can feel the stool pressure and see the swell of it under the skin. The only way I can get it to pass thru is to apply pressure to it and then the hard dark ball will come out. Ther is no pain just a strong pressure.

mpb,
Have you had any change is diet or are you taking iron? I know that prior I took an iron pill everyday and it constipated me and my stool was very dark. I have an ileo and took an iron tab for a few days and it never constipated me but it chaged the color of the stool.
