Hi,
It do happen till few days after colon surgery.What you will do :
Take soft diet like banana and yogurt
Take more water you can also mix some pinch of salt and lemon and some pinch of sugar in it.
You will take Cholestyramine Powder after consulting with your doctor ,this drug is very effective in such a condition.
Regards
