Need to really flush out the system – prunes?
It’s becoming apparent I have some kind of mass/lump/swelling/irritation somewhere in my bowel/colon causing various poo related problems and mild pain/discomfort. While I wait the three weeks for a GP appointment as I’ve moved two streets out my previous GP catchment area and they won’t see me and have had to register with another, I’d to flush the old pipes out a bit to see if I can get my pootine back in order to see if that helps thing calm down a bit.
What’s best, prunes? Chickpeas go through me like the clappers but with so much gas I don’t really want to risk it all getting stuck and blowing up like a balloon.Posted 6 days agowobbliscottMember
For me a good strong espresso. My max radius to the nearest toilet if I’m going to have an espresso is about 30 second dash with clenched buttocks.
Fruits like melons also loosen things up nicely for me, have a good healthy portion and let them work.
Muesli too, though might take a bit longer to take effect and the results are not the most pleasant.
Also apparently liquorice is good for it, the proper stuff like the sticks or even the root. Not really had that effect on me – I used to love liquorice as a kid and eat it by the bucket loads with no adverse effects, but my dad can’t look at a stick without having to go.Posted 6 days ago
the orangier dried apricots make me produce more gas than qatar, but not tried the darker ones
didn’t think of all bran and figs, got some prunes though
coffee and cigarettes only cut it if it’s ready to go – I’m looking to scour out the pipes a bit.
considering a colour coded glitter system to track progress. no sign of last night’s sweetcorn yetPosted 6 days agoJujuuk68Member
Second dried apricots – with sulphur dioxide as the preservative ingredient.
Quite literally the shittiest afternoon of my adult career, when I bought a big 500g bag, in a drive to replace chocolate in my diet for health reasons. 12 years later, some of my work colleagues still call it “the apricot afternoon”.
My boss tried to send me home, but I had to point out, I wasn’t even going to get to the bus stop, and the 435 to Redhill is not the place to be when you’re doing a reasonable fancy dress impression of a chocolate fountain.
There was a lot of gas, a lot more smell, but ultimately, a fruity geyser erupted.Posted 6 days agoRaveyDaveyMember
Shame these are out of stock. Read a few reviews 💩💩💩Posted 6 days agoghostlymachineMember
Hmmmmm. Many years ago a small child was having difficulties down there, so was administered a daily prune. Chopped and added to porridge.
Child then decided that prunes were the food of the gods and got into a cupboard and ate most of what was left in the bag.
The rest of that weekend has been forgotten. Officially never happened.Posted 6 days agopatonMember

I have a decade to go before I qualify for the above, and aware of the symptoms of bower cancer but it’s very unlikely at my age and various other things share the same symptoms. I am trying to get seen sooner than three weeks time but not going to go to A&E unless I’m told to, but thanksPosted 5 days ago
