    If you are still going but it's harder, fruit & things will help. But if you're not able to go I would suggest going to the chemist & getting something to help from the other end. Once the water is gone from it, you can't soften it =) hope that made sense!!

    Go with a can of pear juice, rather than a glass, followed by a large glass or two of warm water.
    If that doesn't work, or if it persists despite adequate fibre and water in your diet, I found lactolose to be a life saver. Have a chat to your Dr/Pharmacist
    Best of luck :-)

    It's canned pear juice that I put in a glass...

    2.5 glasses of pear juice. Hoping it helps!

    Mix some 'all bran' in with your normal cereal each morning (I couldn't stand it on its own but if u can do that)
    Aldi also have their own version called 'just bran'.

    Metamucil powder (I only needed 1 tsp every second day) but you will work out what helps you. It suggests 1 dose every day on packet.

    By the way - I didn't use these both at once.
