Help with constipation!!


I have found my cure for constipation!! Raw carrots!! Problem is, I stopped eating them and I'm all blocked up again. I stopped because I was eating them with veggie dip and I think I bought bad dip because it was chunkier than normal and I didn't feel well later that night. So I haven't eaten them in a few days and like I said I'm constipated again.
My poop turns orange but it works!! I better go eat more! I just got done in the bathroom and I was seeing stars! Ouch!

Senna pills were good for me, I also went on an intestinal cleanse.. okay a lot of people will say that's very unhealthy but it felt great to have some regular bowel movements!!

My doctor gave me colace after I came home from the hospital because I was having a hard time.

if you go to the doctors they will give you some drinks.

I got given some because i have "irregular" bowl movements but i never drank them, since i had piles when she gave them to me no way did i want to poo lol

Oh, and prune juice..

Any type of dried fruit generally works for me too.. apricots, raisins, prunes..

Since having my sections almost 5 months ago I am STILL having terrible issues pooping-have hemorids too which don't help AT ALL!! I've tried everything-lots of water, exercise, senekot (stool softners), fruits & veggies, prune juice and NOTHING helps...guess its just a price we have to pay to have our LO's!

Ugh I had a hemorhoid too. It would bleed so bad and it felt like I was pooping out glass. I'm tellin ya, carrots!! Get yourself some ranch veggie dip and a bag of baby carrots and go to town! It worked for me once I started eating them again and now I'm ok. Had some issues the past few days but I'm ok. And I think the hemorhoid healed cause I haven't had any pain lately.
