After finally recoverying from resection.....I've had no further obstructions or big problems in regularity. Occasionally if I am traveling/stress/ irregular meals etc. I have had few episodes of what I felt to be a little slowness of transit. That makes you feel pretty lethargic. My go to relief is: shallow hot/warm bath for 15/20 min. and then grab the big heated towel and I do a sort of belly dance with towel, and use vigorous rubbing to dry pelvis, butt, and perianal area.......THIS IS NOT MEANT to be sexual stimulation
GI specialists recommend it for stimulating the GI system.
I also take 2 fiber capsules every morning.....Citrucel. No blockages ever. But then I have a colostomy
and life is pretty regular with that. But I can sometimes eat something that doesn't like my shortened colon such as more than one piece of thick crust pizza
Too much bulk. That is when I take a bath and vigorous dry and the peristalsis gets jump started.
Good Luck and I hope you hit on a combination that works for you.
