I tend toward the constipation side of any meds. It’s miserable. I had to switch from zofran to compezine that I take every week as premeds before my infusion. Ive used most of the OTC meds and agree that enemas and suppositories are not a long term solution
I didn’t know I could take two of the senna every night. That’s made a difference plus the magnesium. I also eat a couple of prunes and a handful of almonds as my nighttime routine. This seems to keep me regularish.
Otherwise I’ll add baked beans, broccoli, bran cereal or more prunes. They make a difference. My intestines after chemo don't seem to move. There is a senna with a stimulant.
I have a gf that takes 4 colace and 10 prunes a day.
As a side note. You can swap a cup of soaked bran flakes for a cup of flour when baking. I make this swap when making banana muffins.
And as always drink, drink, drink. I find it harder to drink a lot in the winter.
