I have been on Colace for 6 days since gallbladder surgery, not working, off pain meds for 4 days. Can I take Milk of Magnesia to help it along??
Yes, despite taking Colace you can combine milk of magnesia.
Despite this question being more than a year old. We all must remember that when we have ANY type of surgery, surgeon's & anesthesiologist use all types of medications while we are knocked out.
Whether these medications are pain meds, anesthesia or other types of medications there's going to be side effects to them. Thus, making constipation one of the more common side effects after surgery.
Sorry I didn't get to this question sooner.
