    Constipation anyone??

    I have a permanent colostomy and am almost 2 years since surgery. I now have to use stool softeners and laxatives all the time. I eat healthy, fruits & veggies and try and get fiber in my diet. Is this normal or even safe?

      I hope this has been resolved. My doctor had me take Metamucil (or generic) & experiment with the dose. Good luck!
