I haven't had a normal bowel movement in about a week. It's only been medium sized balls but that's it. I feel like there's more in there but don't want to strain to hard and cause hemorrhoids. I was prescribed Protonix due to mild gastritis and I believe it's made me constipated. I've been very gassy lately and lower abdomen cramps that come and go. I've tried Stool Softeners but nothing! But my real question is Does M.O.M liquify stool? Will it work?Thanks!!
Have you tried a natural laxative like Metamucil (Psyllium husk fibre)? Taken before bed, it is gentle and predictable in the morning. If it doesn't work on a small dose, you can always take extra safely the following morning (and wait another 8 hours) and so on. I found it excellent for opiate constipation (which set my inside like concrete).

I took Magnesium Citrate yesterday at 3:20 p.m. Didn't have a bowel movement until 10:00 p.m., then?
