Aloha.  I just had my reversal after 6 months with an ileostomy.  I am very relieved to have the bag off except I am extremely constipated.  I know the pain meds got me there but I have been drinking milk of magnesia, drinking prune juice, lots of fruit.  Still nothing.  I am getting really worried that I will need to go back to the hospital.  ANy help out there?

Miralax is otc now. Go buy some and take 2 doses a day until it works. It can take a few days to work....
