Good idea on the fiber! My dad had both his knees replaced this year and he was eating multiple FiberOne bars a day and it still didn't help him keep things moving. The painkillers made everything come to a screeching halt.

more than the typical fiber and water to get things going. My dr puts all his patients on activating laxatives. Since being on the magnesium, I dont need anything else. Not sure why most drs dont give out this info before there's a problem.

My dad is having his second knee replacement in April. Not an easy surgery. Hope your dad is doing well.
