Is Gas-x ok to take after a TT?

Post-tummy tuck constipation
This is a very common post-operative issue. Gas-X should be okay, but you should let your doctor know that your sister is having issues with constipation. A combination of anesthesia, sitting still, pain medications, and not wanting to strain all contribute to post-operative constipation after abdominal surgery. Often, a suppository will help to get things moving after this amount of time, but, again, it's best to ask your surgeon and he/she can advise you.
All the best in healing,

Most patients do not have bowel movement for 3-4 days post-op.
She should continue with stool softener, hydration, and ambulation. Unless she feels uncomfortable and distended, I would give some more time.
Gas-X should be fine.
Best wishes with recovery.
