Should I take a stool softener while I’m on my pre-op diet?

Constipation can be a problem during your pre-op and post-op diets depending on what you are consuming. If your pre-op diet consists of mostly protein shakes, you aren’t getting the fiber and fluids necessary to move your bowels. Solving this problem requires a trial and error approach.
