That's a question only a doctor can answer. Certainly when we take pain meds, we absolutely must eat lots of fiber (I eat prunes a lot as well as other high fiber things). If you don't eat right, one must use Miralax or something to keep themself regular. In the past, I've been to the ER twice thinking I may have a bowel blockage only to find out I was impacted.
