In brief: Not really

Adding colace (docusate sodium) and high fiver diet is an excellent idea, however it can backfire if you don't drink more water than usual.

In brief: Not due to those

Any obstruction you get won't be because of colace and fiber.
Never the less, consider MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) for treatment of long term constipation.
