Ouch! That sounds pretty tough. What dose of morphine are you on? I'm not too familiar with oxycodone doses, a little more so with oral morphine (although more with parenteral morphine).

I've had some success with a couple of cereal bars that have quite a lot of fiber in them. Unfortunately I'm out (need to go grocery shopping). My experience is that whole grains are better for the GI stuff than green veggies, although if MOM isn't helping you....

What has your internist or pain specialist to say about your problem? If they have experience prescribing opioids then they should also have plenty of experience helping patients deal with constipation.

sympathetically yours,
