My husband had his reversal 2/1/08, 7 weeks ago. He has constipation. A week ago the nurse suggested clean out with Milk of Mag, which he did and cleaned out all night, then he was to take 2 Colace daily, but this has not totally worked. He went a little a couple times. I told him to try increasing the Colace, which he waited all week, but did today. I think he should consult a GI. Do you think that is the way to go? Since his colon resection (the dr took about 10") on 9/5, he has seen only his surgeon. A very good surgeon, but I wonder if a GI could help get his colon working. I'd appreciate you input. Thanks.
