Post Op 6 weeks

So, my LAVH was on Dec 3rd 2012 - things are great - except the horrific constipation. During the surgery, my Dr discovered my intestines where "kinked and attached to my abdominal wall" and she "fixed it" for me. I was diagnosed with IBS in 1996 and have had the "D" kind. Now after the surgery, I have had horrific constipation. Blessing in disguise? Now I would give anything for a healthy BM! I've been reading thru the forum and feel so much better knowing I am not alone here! Stool softeners is what my Dr has prescribed - and I'm hoping they do the trick. I'm a little scared after reading other peoples experiences with that...prolapses and all. I seem to have all the symptoms of that and it scares me to death!! I am so greatful for this forum, and all of the insight I know it will bring. Thank you to everyone for being so candid and sharing!

Hi Hun if you are constipatied you may need to take a mild laxative Sometimes even stool softeners needs a little push in the rite direction. Drink plenty of water Hun.
