For starters, welcome here. Glad you found us. As for your question, are you now having BM's fine on your own? Are you struggling, or is it painful? It's not about
how many you take, it's about
how many you need to help you get regular again. Did you have recent PC surgery? Kind of sounds like you did, or perhaps some other treatment method. If you wish, include some more information about
your self. It certainly wouldn't hurt to simply ask your doctor, no such thing as a dumb question to them, so ask away.
As for my own example, took them for about
two weeks after my surgery once I was home from the hospital. Then I was regular again and able to go without any pain or struggle, I simply stopped taking them.
