      My Mom is about 80 y/o--she is on blood pressure meds--she eats good--drinks a lot of fluids and is quit active.
      For the last couple of weeks she has been complaining of bloating,
      feeling like she has not fully evacuated when moving her bowels.
      She normally has one or two good movements a day--so I'm not sure what to think of this.
      I have given her MOM--Dulcolax Suppositories, prune juice.. nothing seems to work--she is still having some issues.
      I was wondering if this might have something to do with the CT Scan which she had 3 weeks ago--she took that white chalky stuff and says she might not of gotten it all out? The scan was non eventful.
      Her doctor has examined her--says nothing is wrong--but she is still feeling like she is clogged up-- I would like to try and get her bowels to move naturally for I would not want her to get impacted and have to go to a specialist/hospital to have anything removed .
      Any suggestions would be appreciated.
      Thank-you

        What always works for me is extra fiber in this form: Fiber One cereal in the morning (appx 15 grams of fiber and add sprinkling of fiber in powered form.....both available at the supermarket. I eat green leaf lettuce during the day and take extra fruit and veggies. I then normalize with 1-2 days.

          That usually does the trick for almost everyone I know, even when prunes
          won't. My grandmother used to eat prunes, she loved them but they didn't
          move her bowels as they are well-known for. But applesauce would work for
          her every time.

            Things should be back to normal soon. If Isabgol or Mucibael are available in your country these are beneficial. Otherwise too, food having fibre, such s salads and fruits would help in things coming back to normal. Maybe some gentle exercise such as walking would ease up the situation.

                  For Izabel:  most times omega 3 oils, such as fish oil,  will most likely help solve the problem.  Take 2 capsules at a time or 2 tablespoons of liquid if you cannot swallow the large capsules.  Most people can take 4 capsules a day but with the elderly 2 may be the limit.  Also, a product called calm is fast it is magnesium citrate--this works quickly and efficiently.  Yes, the barium used for the CT scan may cause constipation.  Good luck!

                    (ground) has the right ratio of both, with the added bonus of beneficial
                    omega 3 fatty acids, whereas psyllium is only a bulking agent.

                      There are also some great Chinese herbal formulas for this. It's easy

                        feeling like she has not fully evacuated when moving her bowels.
                        She normally has one or two good movements a day--so I'm not sure what to think of this.
                        I have given her MOM--Dulcolax Suppositories, prune juice.. nothing seems to work--she is still having some issues.
                        I was wondering if this might have something to do with the CT Scan which she had 3 weeks ago--she took that white chalky stuff and says she might not of gotten it all out? The scan was non eventful.
                        Her doctor has examined her--says nothing is wrong--but she is still feeling like she is clogged up-- I would like to try and get her bowels to move naturally for I would not want her to get impacted and have to go to a specialist/hospital to have anything removed .
                        Any suggestions would be appreciated.
                        Thank-you
