Maybe a stool softener, like Dulcolax, would help, too.
Never thought of that! I'll check with my surgeon tomorrow. He doesn't like colace long-term, but maybe until I get regulated it'll be ok. I pulled up the list of foods that help to thicken, loosen, odor, etc. Problem is, everytime I have the foods to loosen..they are eating me apart with gas!!
