A secret many doctor's wont tell you, fiber goes two ways. It wll either soften you or firm you up. Many fruits will contain fibers, such as prunes and apples. You should also take a fiber supplement. It worked for me in the past, but now I do a different approach. I was diagnosed with lactose intolerance, and have "issues" with my bowels when I injust it. So when I was actually hospitalized and had this problem due to post surgerical I told the nurse to give me a milk shake. Kid you not, I had a bowel for the first time in a week within 30 minutes of that milkshake. They were dumbfounded til I told them I was lactose intolerant and it makes me too soft so I figured I'd do it smart and natural verses the stool softner.
