It really just depends on if they were constipated in the first place and the type of laxative. Painkillers and the drugs they give you to knock you out for surgery cause constipation.
After surgery I was so constipated 2 days later the scale said I was ten pounds heavier. Now some of that was probably water weight but I had to drink two bottles of magnesium citrate before and relief came. It doesn't give you forced cramps like some other laxatives. It is a more natural method.0
