Drink loads of water. It’s really miserable being constipated. I’d go back to dr.

Linseeds/flaxseeds, high fibre bran, prune/prune juice, fruit and try exercise if you can - these things helped me when I suffered. Good luck x

Grind oats and drink them dissolved in water.

Get Psyllium husks (not psyllium tablets) dissolve in water and drink it down. You can add juice or a smoothie.

Btw smoothies made of banana, chia seeds, kiwi, oats and teff flour as well as pure low fat cocoa powder are going to do the trick. 👍
