I was reminded of this by another post. I had awful constipation this last time, I was given these instructions at the hospital and they work! All of this is OTC. You start the first day you fail to have a Bowel movement in 24 hours don't stop anything each day, ADD what is listed to the regimen:
Day 1 take 2 Senokot S tabs 2x a day
Day 2 add Docusate Sodium(Colace) 1 pill 2x a day
Day 3 add Miralax per bottle instructions
Day 4 add Milk of Magnesia 2 tabs every other day
Day 3 or 4 Drink Magnesium Citrate 4 oz every 12 hours (I ordered this from Amazon)
Day 5 - call your doctor!!!
IDC, 2.2 cm, Stage IIb,lumpectomy 1/30/09 ACx4,Tx4 36 rads
6/1/16 Local recurrence same breast, same spot 1.8cm Carb.4x every 3 wks, Taxol 12x once wk. Dbl Mast. PCR!! Reconstruction fail, NED!
