Prunes, Fybogel, Lactulose.

Yep. Prune juice. Big glass until you're better and then a 'shot' everyday.

It tastes vile but think of it as medicine and knock it back. It works wonders.

Lactulose will be your best friend. 15ml three times a day

Sounds simple, but make sure you are drinking enough too - water, juice, squash, it doesn't matter really, just ensure you drink lots and it will definitely help.
