Some of the medications I was given during/after chemo have caused constipation for me. It was recommended to use MiraLax on a regular basis to keep the bowels moving, especially if you are unable to eat enough fibrous foods to keep them moving. This has made a huge difference for me.

You are so right! Chemo causes constipation! It is really important to keep the bowels moving. MiraLax was a life saver for me, too – several spoons a day should take care of it.
