Constipation: Laxatives like miralax (polyethylene glycol) in combination with enemas to soften the stool already in your rectum and sigmoid colon will likely ease your constipation. Make sure to avoid fatty foods and eat plenty of fiber and leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water as well. If that does not help see your physician.
