My stomach is too messed up to eat at this point. I just started taking two scoops of Konsyl which is pretty strong stuff. Took Citrucel for a long time but it doesn't have as much fiber as Konsyl. Considering that nothing seems to be helping me, I don't know if my advice is worth much.
since doing the FODMAP diet i have suffered more constipation, i think its because i used to eat bran cereal every day (still had constipation though).i have thought of increasing fibre in my diet but do not want to make things worse or cause more gas/ bloating, as i have this already.what is the best way?i have wondered about adding oatbran to my diet?

What are you doing to alleviate constipation, assuming you're staying on FODMAP diet? I am on FODMAP too, but only a week now, haven't had a movement yet. Have eliminated coffee which i am sure is contgributing.
Kathleen--thanks so much for your explanation of fodmap and c. this has been so helpful to me--explains why when i followed a strict fodmap diet, my c got worse.

Fiber: is an amazing rich food it is a Great choice to reduce constipation problem. Fiber is part of plant material that we cannot abstract. Fiber is helpful for constipation because its serves to both add bulk and softness to the stool. Additional to reduce the constipation problem try to drink prune juice and 2-3 liters of water per day. Be active in physical exercise it helps you a lot to reduce constipation problem.

I eat a bowl of oatmeal with 2 tsp.of ground flax seed in the morning along with 6 stewed apricots or prunes. A piece of fruit or raw carrots at lunch, and high fiber vegetable at dinner. Allowing 30 minutes every morning on the toilet to move my bowels has kept me constipation free for the last 2 1/2 years. I also make sure I drink lots of water through out the day as well.
