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.

Let me add, hot soup, coffee, tons of water also make a difference. A liquid diet until the constipation passes. Also, try getting more exercise, even if it is making 10 tours of your home every day. It will remind your bowels of what it should be doing.
