Try usung duphalacl dry/syrup - This is a very safe stool softener taken once daily and can be used for months at a time. Just to correct the other post from Anon (which sounded a like like an advert ... ): Dulcolax is not as harmfull to the gut as indicated - probably one of the safest on the market, and according to reasearch definitely safer than aloe
