The Brat's Revenge: Why don't you chill on that. Let your poor G.I. tract readjust and normalize.Unless you're so stopped-up your ears are pulsating, just eat a normal diet with plenty of liquids and fiber and see what happens over the next few days.Prune or other thick concentrated fruit juices(apricot,pear)work for some people.Metamucil might get the gut going but don't stress over it, that'll just make it worse
