Suffering with Myasthenia Gravis, used mineral oil as laxative. Losing control on bowels. How to gain control ?

I have an elderly relative who has Myasthenia Gravis . He has used mineral oil as a laxative for years, and I believe is currently losing control of his bowels. I think it is due to the mineral oil weakening his peristalsis . He claims the MG has weakened his bowels. If he has weakened his system with the mineral oil, is it possible for him to regain bowel control?
