    Hi there, every week my cdc asked me if im constipated. Does this mean that I cant go at all or does it mean im finding it hard to go ? i always say no, as I do go, but (i dont mean to sound disgusting) its like little brown rabbit poops.

    Im drinking 3-4 litres water a day.

    Am i constipated.:jelous:

    er yes you are. Hard poo (especially rabbit dropping types) is constipation. Normal is smooth, wet 'normal' consistancy. More water hunnie and some help! xxxx

    Supermarkets dont really stock it, you'll need a health food store. It's a fibre supplement, is supposed to help you 'go'. Might be an idea to speak to your cdc to check you can take it. X

    I got my psyllium husk in powder form at Holland and Barret, (£11 for a biggish tub)I put a heaped tsp in with my shake mix before blending. Before i started using it I used Dulcolax every 3-4 days but it's powerful stuff and I got stomach cramps, but its a good emergency standby. The P husks keep things moving more naturally and they thicken the shakes so I feel more full.
