My husband is weiny95 and has been posting his progress on this forum. He has his reversal last Thursday (5 days ago) has been doing pretty good. Had bms and eaten a little. Today he has not done a bm and is having frquent side pains like he has been. I am worried something might be wrong. Should he be taking any kind of laxative or any kind of antibiotic? I will definetly call the doctor tomorrow.

is he vomiting? Fever? Nauseous?

I wouldn't use a laxative without talking to your doc first...make sure he is walking and drinking to keep things moving.
