Hi

I am 18 months post opp and have always had a slow digestive tract so post bypass constipation has always been a big issue with me.

In the early days post surgery the only thing that would work was Glycerine and Ducalax Suppositories and sometimes both together when it got really bad.

For the last year I have been taking a daily dose of Movicol which has really helped.

Make sure you are drinking the minimum of 2 litres of water a day though as because of the drastic reduction in your food intake it all stays in much longer so the body can take much more out of it and that includes any water, so it ends up being to hard and dry to pass un added. If you get my drift.

Hope this has been of help.

Paul
