Depending on your strength at this point, you may be only able to do a 3-day fast. What I mean is, I wouldn't get disappointed if you couldn't do a full 10 day fast. This may happen because of your semi-weakened state, depending on your health at this point.
What do you plan to eat/drink? I can do a semi fast with steamed veggies, tofu and water & lemon and lots of fresh parsely for cleansing. I know this helped me a lot as far as candida.
Laxatives: Don't take if you have any abdominal pain(s). I didn't know any better and ended up with an appendectomy. MDs and nurses will tell you this. SOP
