I am schedule to get a Heorroidectomy next week n wander if a post kidney transplant can take magnesium citrate?   I am always having more than two bm every day n probable due from taking Cell-cept n Prograf since 2002.  I have already been on other anti-reject meds n they didn't work. I have been avoiding this surgery since 2009 n now it has gotten where it is just too painful to even sat down n losing a bit of blood.  I heard that the anethesia n pain medicine can constipate you n I surely don't won't to have that After the surgery.  I was wandering if if anyone else has had this surgery done and if they needed to take something to keepthem  from being constipated from all that stuff?

Tacro and Lymph Node

Good evening, At a recent appointment my husband was told that if he notices a swollen node he should skip his tacro and call the doctor immediately. His last labs were last month and all was good. Tonight he noticed that the lower left front of his neck appears puffy. We are not sure if it is a lymph node or not. There is nothing hard but he said it is tender to touch. He has no fever or other symptoms. Any advice or info is appreciated.
