Just to let you know, inactivity can also cause constipation. Get up
and walk. Even if it is inside the house, walking is good. I don’t
have any idea of the layout of your house, but here’s some
ideas: From the front door to the back. Just keep going for so many
“laps” or so many minutes. If you start feeling uncomfortable, stop,
write down the time or laps, whichever. Next day, stop at that same
time or laps. After a few days, see if you can add a lap or a couple
of minutes. Believe it or not, a friend of mine that weighed over
500 pounds lost weight this way. He said it sure was an
encouragement when their housekeeper started in Woohoo, look at you
go! when he tried without his canes. It’s been a struggle, but he’s
down to about 400 pounds.
Go on-line and search for the diets you need. webmd is a very good
place for such things. You can also look up conditions and learn a
lot about them.
Yes, drink a lot of water. I work in a hot job, and if I get
dehydrated it causes constipation. One easy way to tell if you are
drinking enough liquids is to pull up just a tiny fold of skin on the
back of your hand. If it goes back to normal immediately when
released, you are ok. If it takes a second or 2, drink some water.
