i had over 5 feet of colon removed but still have problems with blockages and now i have finally found something that works with out meds...............Priase God.
i boil these things together and then eat it with fat free plain yoguart.
i boil prunes, and both kinds of rasins and keep them in the fridge and eat this almost everday with plain yoguart. i eat about a 1/4 cup at a time. and if i feel like really cleaning myself out i just eat it two times a day. to me it isnt that bad and it works ever time....before surgery it wouldnt of worked but after surgery it works great now.. in fact i am going to go eat some now.......
you could eat it with oat meal if you like oat meal. or on top of ice cream. it is very sweet so i like it on non sweet things. but anyway. anyone else have things that work every time without meds............

At least it's not a medication-who wants anymore of those! and it's natural and probably doesn't taste too bad. It's a yummy, healthy breakfast.

Trial and error, right? Good for you to find something that you like and that is not a medication!

hey  mommy

I am so glad for you - it is good to know that eventually everything works out ok in the end.  i am pleased you are doing ok. did they keep any of your large bowel at all or was it all removed ?
