I've been taking Vicodin all week after my hernia surgery that plugged me up something fierce. Ate a lot of coconut flour last night that I'm convinced made me go but I had to sit and strain, Def not good after the surgery, to get my waste out. It was scary and painful so I'm looking for some sort of primal softener. If there isn't one I guess I'll have to go with some soft gels from the store with all the chemical dyes in them or milk of magnesia.
