Re: Laxatives

Maybe try Golden Linseeds on cereal each morning, certainly worked for me after 3 cycles of EC,  trying everything else recommended and given (literally).  A tbsp per day was enough for me.  Only one word of warning, they are annoyingly tiny and get stuck in between teeth!

Re: Laxatives

Hi Butler

Hard luck. Constipation plagued me throughout. I was worried about extremes but found senna had little effect. If it’s the round brown tablets, they won’t have a major impact though daily use may help. Senna is a laxative that has been used since the time of the Pharaohs! In my case, chemo affected internal muscle movement and senna wasn’t an astounding success. Combined with the sachets which will add bulk and soften the stool however, you may find success. Try each on its own and if there’s no result, go for the combination. After a couple of weeks of inactivity, you’ll probably welcome any outcome! All the best xx
