Hello friends. On April 2nd I had a hysterectomy and so I am on narcotics. As some of you may know, these tend to constipate people. I am using stool softeners, gas ex, and if needed laxatives. My mother, who tends to try and live holistically, really wants me to start taking magnesium. Usually I am all for trying natural stuff first, but my oncologist basically told me to not use any dietary supplements with out talking to him or doing extensive research, because they can counter act the Opdivo.
My question is, has anyone else been on Opdivo and been given the green light by their oncologist to use magnesium? Dr. Richart is on vacation and won't return until after Easter, and I can't find any returns when searching about this.
Thanks in advance.
