Dr. Oz has quite a few videos on constipation.
Lots of tips and good information. On last Thursday's show he also did a segment on constipation and he said that your sitting position can make a difference. He said you should sit with your feet up on a stool and lean forward to unkink the colon and open it up.
Well, Natalie....at this stage the MUA may be the right thing for you. How far out from surgery are you again? (It would help if you put your surgery date in your signature...)
If you get dead-ended, many times an MUA can be just the thing to get you going again. But......if your lack of ROM is just from swelling, then that's a different matter. When you see your surgeon, you'll want to have him tell you that he believes you have scar tissue holding you back. If you don't, then I would not be convinced an MUA will help.
