    Dulcolax are the best but you should also try Dulcoease first. Dulcoease is a stool softener and this is quite often more the problem that not being able to go at all. It's also much kinder. If that doesn't move things after a couple of days, then try the laxative. Don't forget to keep up the water.

    Also, don't get obsessive and be patient and gentle with yourself or you could start a pendulum where you are going from one extreme to the other!!

    add psyllium husks to your drinks if you can. If that doesn't work then dulcolax is my preferred drug of choice! Hope things get moving soon. Don't go overboard with the laxatives. Things will work their way out eventually!!
