In brief: Plugged Plumbing
Constipation helpers: eat whole grains, lots of fruit&veggies, oatmeal, psyllium, ground flaxseed, metamucil.
Drink 8-10 glasses of fluid a day. Take over the counter docusate, bisacodyl, or MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) (take more MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) when you're really plugged up, less when you're loose-y goose-y). Get moving 60 minutes every day. Good luck!
