If a person with Hirschsprung Disease is chronically constipated after corrective surgery, how is that treated?
If someone with Hirschsprung disease is experiencing constipation after surgery, contact their doctor. They may need a laxative or rectal therapies. It also may help to increase fiber in the diet.
