My surgeon offered the standard recommendations of more fiber, more water, stay active. I have had colon resection so for all intents and purposes, I no longer have diverticulitis. He removed 7 inches of my sigmoid colon. He told me I need to "manage" the constipation, but could not tell me if this is going to be a life long problem. It's very distressing.

I am having the same issues with constipation and laxatives aren't working. Was told not to "insert" anything so don't know what to do
