things that help constipation

Hello Sisters! I am eating an all organic diet for my surgery recovery that I plan to stick to after I get better too. One of my doctors suggested a good pro-biotic and plenty of plain yogurt to keep up the healthy intestinal flora for easy digestion and to prevent yeast infections during recovery. So far, I've had a bowel movement every day since the day after surgery with little strain! It helps the pressure and the gas in there tremendously.

I'm also eating lots of apple sauce, cottage cheese, mild soups, cooked spinach, green beans and fresh fruits.

So far, GREAT! No troubles with BM's whatsoever.
I bought 3 big tubs of plain yogurt and found these yummy fruit preserves (organic) that are only sweetened with apple juice. I add about 1/3 cup of this gluten-free granola I found (Fiona's granola) plus a handful of dried cranberries and raisins and it is soooo yummy! I have this treat once or twice a day.

It's like having a piece of cream pie and it is good for me too. I thought this suggestion could help some of you, but if you are lactose intolerant, it would not be a good idea. I always get the yeast infections after anti-biotics, so this was a good way for me to prevent that from happening! Try to avoid eating a lot of meats, breads, anything made with flour and bananas or you will stay clogged up. Hope we can all heal well together!
