Ok, this is something I never thought I’d be discussing, but for the last several weeks I’ve have regular (twice a day) large, hard dry stools. It must be what it’s like giving birth! For many years I’ve had nothing but very soft poop, so this is weird. I’m being treated for fissures, so this is very bad timing. I’ve tried taking 6 fish oil caps a day, stool softeners, drinking straight olive oil, drinking a gallon of water a day, adding even more fruit and vegetables than I was already eating, cut out all flour and cheese and red meat, make sure I get plenty of exercise... NOTHING is helping! Every morning and every afternoon I sit on the toilet for 30 minutes while this extremely large dry poop takes its time coming out. Help! Thank you.
