@korgman123 – I have had issues off and on for a few years with constipation and think I finally might have it under control. I'm not sure it's related to my small fiber peripheral neuropathy but it may have played a part in the problem. A few weeks ago I had bilateral inguinal hernia surgery but before the surgeon agreed to do the surgery I had to spend a little over a month getting the constipation under control. I used Miralax daily and sometimes twice daily along with an Rx of Lactulose to kick start the movements – https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/lactulose-oral-route/side-effects/drg-20528356. I am still taking Miralax daily but was told I can reduce the amount to see how it goes. The goal is for me not to strain when having a bowel movement to unfix the hernia surgery.
I've also worked on eater more fiber rich food to help. I found this article that talks on the topic of treating constipation and might be helpful.
