Constipation has been a major concern for me since I was diagnosed in 2011. After various attempts to resolve the problem I eventually found some success by taking two Laxido Powders every night. I also eat a few prunes in the morning with cereal. More recently, I suffered a recurrence when adding a further medication to my prescription. Like your OH, I associated the recurrence with loss of muscle control. I have managed to overcome this by delaying my visits to the toilet until the need is more urgent. If I go to the toilet at the first signal, I find its a struggle.
