Hi..... Add fiber to your diet increases the weight of your stool and speeds its passage through your intestines..... Exercise most days of the week. Physical activity increases muscle activity in your intestines. Try to fit in exercise most days of the week.... Slowly begin to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals.....Consider laxatives.... Consult surgeon....
