Our expert says:
Well you have really overdone things this time! Prunes, even the fresh ones, have a strong laxative effect and should not be eaten in portions of more than 2-3 a day. You must have eaten 10 or 20 times this amount, hence the diarrhoea and nausea. You will have to allow your poor digestive system to recover from this onslaught. Stick to eating bland foods such as toast, and tea or rooibos for 2-3 days until the symptoms have subsided. Never eat or use any food or preparation with a laxative effect in excessive quantities.
Hope you start feeling better
