Hi Trooper! I had my reversal done on March 9/09 and have the same problem. I never did have the diarrhea that everyone else had. I too have horrible constipation issues. I find what works for me is ground flax seed (about two HUGE teaspoons twice a day on my cereal morning and night). Also I drink prune juice when things are not moving along well. This helps and keeps me going. Have you tried prune juice?? It usually works quite well if you can drink it..it's awfully sweet. Best of luck to you and I hope some of this will help you. ....Cheryl
