    I swear by movicol. It is very gentle and I take 1 sachet a day to keep me going , but if you are really bunged up you can take 3-4 sachets in a day and it will clear the 'blockage' certainly worth a try :)

    Hi you may have seen from a recent thread o had this prob always rely on dulcolax n when that didn't work I was stuffed! I took the advice from the guys here and the pharmacist m go lactulose worked within a couple of hours! Still unsure if it takes u out of ketosis though!!

    Over an extended period of time some "laxatives" or motility agent can result in a "lazy" bowel - each type will tell you what is the recommended usage limitations on the packet.

    On an "occasional" basis you'll be fine but prevention is better so get started on a daily fibre and 20 minute walk regime (to stimulate the gut) ASAP.

    something like dulcolax can effect long term as it works on how the bowel itself works , things like lactulose and movicol act on the softness of the poo , which because on CD you have such little 'waste' is the problem . When you return to eating a 'normal ' diet with proper food , fruit etc then your poo should return to normal , I find bulking agents like the fibre and the pysillium husks actually make me worse whilst on CD so avoid them now

    You're welcome hon... the gas is a pain (literally!) but if you think about it it's like a traffic jam... when it gets going again the back of the queue is still slow/stopped for quite a while until the front builds up enough speed
