Re: ... it's like my colon forgot how to work... need advice!

Two things that I am still standing by still today 3 weeks post-op:
Coffee and Colace 3 times a day. I started both the moment I got home from the hospital. Has worked wonders!!

My doc told me to take Colace twice a day for the next month. I'm also eating Activia yogurt, fruits & veg, high fiber grains, drinking lots of water, and it is still a struggle. Took Miralax one day and that helped. I'm only on day 6, but will definitely need to stay on top of this issue.
