Re: Surgery the answer?
A colon resection will not help a lazy bowel.
The things that you mentioned will cause a lazy bowel.
laxatives, enamas, colonics and some fibers!!
To have normal BMs a person needs 25 to 35 grams of fiber daily. And, it needs to be a combination of both insoluble and soluble fibers.
There are basically 2 types of fiber -- soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber absorbs fluids and bulks up your stools whereas insoluble fiber cause the muscles contractions to move digested food through your intestines (pereistalsis).
The insoluble fiber is all fruits and veggies, and the outer part of grains used in cereals-- bran also including the outer part of beans and peas, along with nuts and seeds.
Soluble fiber is the inner part of all grains like rice, corn, barley, wheat and the inner part of beans and peas-- green beans are insoluble. Also, root veggies like potatoes, carrots, beets and turnipsare soluble. And of course all the soluble fiber supplemeents like psyllium-- Metamucil, Citrucel, Benefiber and FiberChoice-- chicory root-- Inulin.
I think you need to eat the kind of foods that cause your intestinal muscles to function. Like more fruits, veggies and bran cereals. And, train your colon!!
