Amey,
Thanks for your suggestion we will try that. If anyone else has a suggestion please let us know, this has been our biggest problem so far.

Different things work for different people....  I quit drinking caffeine, so now when I drink "full strength" coffee, I notice more activity.  Also, licorice jelly beans do it every time, but I only get them at Easter time!  Love 'em.  Pushing liquids is always a good thing.  Amey has a great idea with the prune juice.  Personally, I have to slow things down, so I take imodium RX.  Good Luck !

Jelly Beans? I wanted to eat a couple the other day but I thought that they might be too sticky for my stoma...(I know that sounds goofy, huh?). Can I eat jelly beans?

I've never had a problem with them ---  remember, if you can dissolve it in a glass of water, no problem!  Sugar dissolves.  At least that is how I know if I can eat something without any issues at all.  Fiberous stuff, like those veggies and fruits, that are so good for you -  well, I have to be very careful to chew, chew, chew.  

I think it is the licorice that "moves things along" more quickly for me. 

So, eat up!
