Yes,it can be a problem, but I have found an alternative solution. Here in Australia ordinary linseed can be purchased from health food shops very cheaply. I have found that a dessertspoon daily (morning) helps . No uncomfortable pain either. Good luck!

Nate had it really bad when he was first diagnosed.
He didn’t go for about 10 days. They finally put him on some stool softener and it helped get rid of that problem.
He was on them for months before it got better.
I have the same problem due to meds I take. I use a generic matching FiberCon. It works very well for me.
It might be good to talk to your doctor about a bulk producing type of softener. They help you feel like you need to go and soften what you have to get rid of.
