    Hi.

    I'm suffering terribly with goin to the toilet on cd and wondered if anythone has been through anything similar to give advice.

    I'm going to the toilet roughly once a week. I've been taking senna to try and help this. It's not massively uncomfortable though so no worries with frequency. My problem is that when I go it's agony. I'm sorry I can't find any nice way to put this, but it's so big and hard :( I've developed piles and tonight I honestly questioned whether I could carry on with it.

    Does anyone know of anything to help. A laxative maybe that's ok? A stool softner? I've heard cd sell fibre something?

    I'm so so sorry for the gross post x

    Have you considered a colonic??? I done it a few times when on SS and it really helped! Good to keep your bowel hydrated ! Also ducolax good and I always add the cd fiber!

    Firstly before you start using the fibre you need to clear the blockage so to speak lol:eek:

    Sennokot and dulcolax are all very harsh on our bowels, so only use when essential, I use movicol which although takes a little longer to work it is less harsh on your system.

    Hope you get things going soon hun xx

    Get yourself something more natural to help you go then get on the fibre from cd.

    If it makes you feel better I'm at the other end of the scale and it's hell
