I would get Natural Calm for constipation. It is a natural form of manesium which is the ultimate natural cure for constipation. You can get it at most any health food store or Whole Foods. It's a powder mixed with hot liquid and you drink it like tea. It comes in several flavors. My suggestion would be to take two tsp in a cup of water first, then about 4 hrs later 1 tsp, then 4 hrs. later another tsp. It should easily resolve itself. I take Natural Calm every day because we need magnesium so badly, and it's basically been farmed out of the soil (or so I've been told).
Be sure she is drinking LOTS of water. No cheese or bananas as these don't help!
My surgery was over a year ago, and the surgeon told me I would possibly have permanent numbness in some areas. They do cut through nerves.
