Constipation after attack

Hi Alll,

I'm 4 weeks out of hospital with my first Diver attack. It was apparently a whopper despite no abcess.
I was just ready to transition to a more solid diet, but have not had a BM in 2 days despite copious water consumption and colace.
I know avoidence of constiation is an imperritive: I'm freaking out! I don't see my GI till July 16
Any ideas? I'm still low residue, but something should be coming out

Since: Jan 12

Hi June
Say if you have been doing all liquids then there will be very little stool I really do not think this is a problem at this time you need some solid foods then you will be able to go again
