Hey Kimlin! That's great news!! I'm happy things went well for you. When I first came home from hospital after my reversal I couldn't get things moving either. I walked and walked and drank lots of hot tea. Nada. I finally felt so miserable I took a dose of Milk of Magnesia and that got things moving. Then I was on to the prune juice. It worked great but it's too sweet for me..
So now I use ground flax seed and it is the most amazing stuff! I have always had problems with constipation so I make sure I get my daily of flax!..... Congrats on your reversal!!!......Cheryl
