    hiya,
    u can use dulcolax, senokot (senna), husks and fibrogel.
    each works differently to different ppl.
    i didnt 'go' for 11 days and tried taking the dulcolax and senna for 5 days with no effect.
    however, the fibrogel seems effective but make sure u only get the natural (green packet), not the lemon or orange flavoured.
    GL, i was in agony so i know how it feels.
    there is a remedy for a natural laxative made up of green tea, black tea, white tea and nettle tea, put them all in a cup of boiling water and allow to cool, then take the teabags out and drink immediately. i havent tried this but apparantly u MUST stay near a toilet as it works QUICK.

    lol, gl with it ruth.
    i use the fibrogel with the sunshine orange flavouring (im a bit of a wuss too) . it goes down much easier that way.
    thats why i havent tried the tea remedy as yet, cause its supposed to taste absolutely awful .
    if i got really bad i would give it a go, especially if erm manual help is the only other option. lol

    Waaaaah, I knew you'd laugh at me Sarah!

    I'll bear the fybogel in mind, last resort methinks (not even contemplating the tea [euw]). I'd rather get an enema from work!!!

    It's amazing the things we talk about to strangers!

    funny how things work so differently for different ppl.
    i took 2 dulcolax every day for 3 days then took 3 on day 4, all i got was the worlds worse tummy pains.
    i have chronic IBS so im not sure if that might be part of my problem, although, before CD constipation was definately not something i suffered from, quite the opposite, i lived on imodium and took over the maximum dose (with permission from doctor) every single day.
    when i went back to the doctors about constipation a few weeks ago she almost fell off her chair. lol

    You all make me laugh so much!!!


    Well, I've been, not as satisfactorily (is that even a word???) as I'd like, but it's a start, lets hope it gets things moving.


    Thank you all for your concern, I feel so loved!
