What do you all use? I am sure there are threads on here and i have read a lot of them, but i am also sure we have tried many things (as I have) and stuff works for a few days and then doesnt work. I have even followed my surgeons direction. and it stops working after a few days.

I can no longer go through this weekly ritual as it is becoming very concerning because even with taking stuff, it is an act of congress to still go. The last two weeks i had to do an enema and.. believe it or not.. today it almost didnt work. I thought i was going to break down in tears and then it worked, but i know there is still some there waiting to be released, hopefully by morning. I took a final dose of Ducolax tonight hoping it will do the trick after i cleaned out some this morning. I did buy Miralax today to try next ( starting tomorrow)

I have done Colace, smooth move, suppositories (dont work anyore, or fully) , swift Kriss, ducolax, regular coffee, bananas, I am out of options. If Miralax works for a few days and stops.. my surgeon is going to have to prescribe something because going BM 4x a month is not working!

I use Milk of Magnesia to jump start. Then benefiber daily to keep it goin. I also had to lay off of the Protein Shakes for a while. That was a factor in it!

As odd as it sounds, I woke up with Diarrhea this morning. Now.. I dont know if its because of the ducolax i took last night or the Quest Protein Bar i ate for dinner last night.

I’ve backed off on the Protein Shakes and do ducolax 2x a day, miralax if I haven’t gone in two days, and alternate between benefiber and Metamucil. The laying off the Protein shakes is a recent attempt to regulate that... so fingers crossed!
