Re: List of items to have at home after ACDF

Yes... the stool softener is necessary. I forgot to take it, and that first movement can be a doozie after surgery. But, it should settle down after that. My protein shakes have metamucil... which also helps... and I take a probiotic daily as well. The sooner you get back to normal bowel function... the better you feel.
