This is Dr. David
yes, you can
you want to avoid constipation.
better to use colace (docusate sodium) as a stool softener and laxatives like miralax or senokott or milk of magnesia laxatives
and drinking plenty of water and eating prunes which can help soften your stools before they get down there to your rectum where hemorrhoid surgery was done
have you used laxatives and stool softeners before?
