Hello. This is embarrassing for me but I don't have an answer so I am just going to ask. I am still constipated. Been like this since my surgery. I take the stool softeners like I am supposed to but it is not working. I took miralax so that I can actually "go". It did work but caused more pain to my abdomen. The thing is that I don't want to have to keep taking laxatives just to go to the bathroom. Is there anything that I can do or take to regulate me without harming myself or interfere with the chemo? Thanks for any input and sorry for this unattractive post.
