Sorry for the symptoms. Please go for veg bland diet with no meat and only yogurt from dairy. Fruit pulp and juices may be consumed frequently. If there is swelling over feet, pl restrict salt also.

May take mild purgative like lectulose daily. Restricting calories (more salads, leafy vegs) may help reduce tummy size gradually. Also do ab exercises by raising both legs, feet 8-10 times while lying supine, 2-3 times in a day. Walk to your limits, morning and evening.

Good luck.

I do already follow most of your suggestions but will try the ab exercises and lactoluse. What do ask for to purchase this?
I have had a colonoscopy yesterday- biopsy’s taken small 2mm polyp removed. No probs seen. The consultant thinks The Venlafaxine and 30/500 painkillers I’ve been prescribed in the past - both discontinued over 2weeks ago. My distended abdomen continues now with severe cramping.To be honest I feel continually in early labour. Uncomfortable is an understatement. The pain of untenable. It’s all gone on for so long I’m so unhappy. Do you have further advice?
Thank you

My GP has just phoned he wants me to take Buscopan 20mgs 4 x daily. It didn’t help previously..... you will understand I am afraid of more drugs. Your thoughts?

Drotaverin is newer anticolic. Please also chew roasted dill seeds every few hours one or two teaspoonfuls.
