Fresh orange.
Get a stool and put your feet on it when you oare on the loo so that you look like your squatting..that should open you up...and avoid piles!!!!

Drink lots of water or fruit juice. Eat fiber. Drink more water. Oh, and drink water.

Eat fresh veggies like celery stalk, carrots. Fruit will help too. Coffee somehow helps get things going, if you can stand it. I feel your pain- it's one of those annoying symptoms.
Are you taking iron pills? The dosage might be pluggin' you up.

Thanks for all the great advice.

Shopping tomorrow so I'll make sure I buy lots of fruit and vege Smile Pick up some prune juice too. Try and find something I can add to water bcoz it tastes so chemically!

I wish I could still have my morning coffee, but the taste at the moment is really off putting makes me want to :puke:

I'm on extra iron so my poo is green...and as I have collitis when I get constipated I don't need to worry about it being hard when it does come...I guess there are blessings in a dodgy
hope you manage to go soon...keep a magazine or book by the loo so you can relax in there when you need to. Smile

My doctor said I could eat Activia, so I have one every other day and it helps a lot.
