    I always use Dulcolax they are powerful little things!!! My goodness if they don't work for you I guess the only thing left is a suppository, I believe these work!!!;)

    You can buy Microlax enemas over the counter, about 87p each or something.

    It should be closer to 8 pints of water hon - 4 pints is only around 2 litres..that might help!x

    For those of you who find that dulcolax dont work, remember that they do not work if taken with milk products, so make sure you take them more than an hour before or after a shake....

    2 hours on Wii fit step freestyle - you can watch normal tv while doing basic step. The Wii remote makes a noise to keep you in time. I work shifts so if im off I normally watch daytime tv - this way I still get to watch the programmes and get some exercise. xx

    I found a product called benefibre helped me in the past. This was at a time when no laxatives would work - crazy enough it was due to me putting nothing in my system!! lol

    My boyfriend bought his wii to my house about 3 months ago, are the programs on wii fit any good as the gentle exercise needed for the primary weeks?

    I do have a home gym, with bike and cross trainer, rowing machine, treadmill, weights bench and a new vibrating machine. I have been thinking about getting rid of all this and just utilising the local gym as it is only £24 per month, you can go anytime you wish and swim as much as you like!

    I ordered the Fitness Coach for the Wii today, you can set up how long you want your workout to be and whether you want it to be gentle or more harder exercise, plus there are no gaps when you swap positions etc... it was £9.99 from Game with free postage.

    I find the wii fit a godsend. It gives me the motivation to carry on as you can do a body test every time you use it and shows you your weight and bmi - thats if you want to see it. I have not done any exercise for the past ten years or so due to a knee injury. I had knee surgery in January this year and the wii fit is as easy or as hard as you wish - you control it - much better than exercise dvds. :eek:

    Sounds like i need to get one of those, im using the Samba De Amigo its a maraca game on the Wii and its really a good work out for your whole body mainly your arms but if you wiggle while your doing it its brilliant and really fun.

    Hi Westiedog - I've been taking strong painkillers 8 a day for siatica and it makes you really constipated so doing ss makes it even worse if thats possible! Anyway dont want to get too graphic lol.. I find the best thing is plenty of water and migralax from the chemist. Your doctor can prescribe it for you if its constant and you feel really bad - hope this helps - sal x:)
