Our expert says:
I agree, constipation is not good for you - she can try taking Lactulose 10-15 mls at night, or Fybogel orange or Movicol daily. She can also use suppositories (e.g. Glycerine ) or give herself a home enema if needed. She should drink enough water (8 glasses a day) and eat lots of fibre (fresh fruit and vegetables) and high fibre carbohydrates and avoid refined foods.
