  • my doc office approved metamucil and senekot. I took the senekot (spelling?) to get me moving and then for a lil bit just had a glass of orange flavored metamucil before bed, and woke up to a comfy movement. I also tried to add high fiber to my diet but when you are nauseus and only have so many foods that your body will accept that is hard.

    good luck

  • Talk to your dr because there are stool softners that you could be taking. I eat a bowl of raisin bran every morning and sometimes once a night that helps. And i don't know if you drink coffee im not a big coffe drinker either but if evey once in awhile in the morning if you drink a small cup that really helps too trust me.
