8 days post op

I had a total vaginal hysterectomy on 5/24/11. I did fairly well, I did have a little nausea and was in a good deal of pain from the stitches in my perineal area , had a hard time urinating for a few days and now not feeling too bad but I do have quite a few bm everyday and I have this pain and discomfort in the rectum after going, it feels like I have to go constantly , is this normal and will it go away? I sure hope its wearing me out

Re: 8 days post op

Are you on a stool softener? That may be your culprit. I would check with your dr to make sure you aren't dehydrated.

I had a TSH 5/25. I felt that way up until yesterday. It has calmed down now, thankfully. I think everything must get disrupted in there and it takes awhile for it to calm down. I hope it gets better for you!

I, too, had the procedure on the 25th. The stool softener is definitely the way to go. Especially if you are on any pain meds. I still have the gas built up in my belly from the surgery, and I can't seem to make it go away. Any suggestions?

gas build up..get gas-x or ovol or some type of over the counter gas reliever..I didn't at first..kind of shrugged it off..but it's so worth it..the pains can be so bad sometimes.
