Problem with constipation - any suggestions?

I have not had any constipation until today and OUCH!!! I was out running errands and I really shouldn't be but my son needs pants for gym class. I literally had to leave the store with all the stuff in the cart. I just can't do it right now anyway I had read post about stool softener's but I just couldn't go back out tonight. I was in pain and I knew i had to go (OOP"S) anyway I drank some coffee (just a small cup) and 30minute later wahla spelling not sure LOL it was fabulous!! still hurt but I feel much better now good luck.

stool softener worked for me

I am 3 1/2 months out from last surgery and about three weeks ago I suddenly became constipated.

I tried a laxative and it worked but stool was still hard. Last night I took a stool softener and it worked perfectly.

This has been the worst problem for me pre-op. My surgery was on Jan 22 and I ended up in the ER with an impaction. i cannot tell you how horrendous that was. I have been instructed to drink 8 oz grape juice every hour and lots of water, eat a couple of apples a day, take stool softeners, and I added Miralax to the mix. I've had some success, but I'm not where I want to be.

A couple of days after my TAH I drank zenocot and the effect was very bad. Can somebody give me some advice?
I had trouble going and had to use a glycerin enema(sp) anyway, once it got moving then the stool softeners kinda took over from there. I tried everything to try to go also, but after 6 days it was time! Good luck and remember to drink lots of WATER!

A big bowl of a Raisin Bran a day keeps the constipation AWAY!!! I promise!
