Hi everyone,I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but one problem I know a lot of us have with constipation is that not only do you have the stress of voiding the hard stool of constipation and getting it out of your body, but I would find it would clog up my toilet very badly and no amount of plunging would even solve it. The toilet at times would need a router, it was horrific.And, so for anyone else suffering this problem, I found an interesting solution. If you go a craft store or the craft section of a large store such as Walmart, they sell wooden dowel rods for crafting. And, I find these are absolutely ideal to break down the stool and liquify it making for easy painless flushing. And, then you can simply wipe it / wash it off, and place it in a plastic baggy and discard it.Simple and painless. I find this can eliminate the stress and worry about traveling in a strange toilet or whatnot. Maybe we can't always solve our own body's plumbing problems, but I found this was an ideal solution for at least taking care of the toilet plumbing problems in dealing with a hard dry stool. Sorry if this is TMI, but I wanted to share, because I know there are others out there with the same worry, and if nothing else, it might be able to help with the internal plumbing problem as well because part of the constipation problem is fear sometimes.
