but I ended up calling the doc out when I was preggers because I was sooo bunged up it was doubling me up in pain... he left me some sterile gloves and told me to get on with it... painful as hell.. rather gross but it worked! LOL
seriously dull, but for the first time in about 15 years i am not constipated - I ahve pooed every day for over a week thanks to ......... a huge bowl of Dorset Cereal super high fibre muesli with some pure all-bran added, each day for breakfast or lunch. Doesn't taste too bad and the effect has been just amazing. I really have always had such problems with my bowels and this has made a massive difference.
