Particial Hystorectomy
Hi Doc

My mum had a particial Hystorectomy about 2 weeks ago and is suffering a little with a dull pain on the right. She is also suffering with a little constipation and gas.She read about a tablet called SP 299 V. This is suppose to help with constipation etc. I was wondering whether this would be safe for her to take it considering the fact that she just had the op. Of not, what else can you suggest.

Thank you

I don't know the tablet you refer to, but something like Metamucil would be fine.
