Can I take Miralax 2 weeks out from Nissen? I'm having trouble with constipation!

Hi lovetohorsebackride,
I'm no expert on Miralax, but I do know that others on the forum have taken laxatives in order to get things moving during early recovery.  Hopefully somebody who has had experience with this will be by soon.
Of course, you can always call your surgeon's office, GI doc, or PCP to ask what they think you should use. 
Happy New Year!

My doctor suggested 3 tblsp of mineral oil and 1/4 cup of water mixed. It's very gentle and fast.
