Constipation & Laxatives !
« on: 26/07/2007 21:21:58 »
Fortunately I have no problems doing my duty !!

I supplement my diet with Fybogel (Fybogel People: please contact me for my product placement  free supply)

Two questions..plus one:

What is the biology behind constipation ? (I know the basics)...how can someone not do their duty for days on end ?

..and how do laxatives  do what they do ?






*silly joke: How do mathematicians cure their constipation ?..They work it out with a ruler !*

My wife was a paramedic, and she had to deal with someone who was so constipated, that, well, it came out the top.

And that's how we met!
