woohoo Senna done it! & Question about Fybogel too!

Hi All

Well after my really disappointing W.I. of only 1/2lb on Monday, talking to my CDC we got to the point of realising I had only had a really tiny umm (excuse TMI) toilet on Thurs and nothing else really for the last week, so she had mentioned to try something like Ex Lax to try and have a clear out and the start of Fybogel, she did say I could have the CD Fibre89 or whatever it's called, but said it's basically the same stuff but more expensive.

Anyway bought the ex lax, but after having a read on the net was v unsure of it - too many bad stories for me, so thought I'd try something gentler first, see what happens, if nothing, then I'd try the ex lax, so anyway long story short, bought the senna (tesco brand of sennakot) and finally today have errr 'been' lol.

So now anyway, I don't want to go back to how I was feeling all full up, bloated and horrible, and want to stay as normal/regular as possible. Firstly, Can I start taking the Fybogel today? And secondly, the Fybogel says to take twice a day, but for anyone else who takes it, do you take it twice, or just the once? Reason I ask is, on the back it does say, it may cause bloating or flatulence due to the increased fibre for the first few days.

Sorry for the long post, I just really want to get this weight shifted now, and trying to do everything right (which I had been doing before, but obviously wasn't working, so now trying the maybe I really was constipated route, and guessing that I really was)
