I have a huge problem with my bowels. I have been using laxatives every day for many years now. I suffer from eating disorders for more than 15 years. I cannot quit them as my bowel is used to this use and I keep getting lots of pain and bloatings. Is it possible for my bowels to get back to normal after many years of abuse and how?
