vaginal pressure when having a Bowel movement

Im 12 weeks post op....I cant seem to have a BM on my own...I have one as long as I take colace 3-4 times a day...I drink lost of water and eat lots of fiber..it just doesnt make a difference, I cant go on my own. How long does this last before getting back to normal. I also feel pressure in my vagina when Im having a BM does anyone else have this problem?

I have also experienced this---but it seems though if I go to the bathroom everyday then the pressure does not seem to be there--I also take colace 2x a day--have you tried metamucil? it is horrible but seemed to work a little--also if it is so bad you can do the bowel prep--I do not know if you had to before surgery but I used Fleet Bowel Prep Kit#1 and my dr said if my constipation gets to bad I can always use that.

Good Luck

I agree with ayers here, hon. Metamucil worked wonders for me. The orange flavor is pretty good - it tastes similar to Tang. During the first 10 days post-op, I had some vaginal pressure when urinating and having a BM and my doc told me that it was nothing to worry about because everything that was left inside (bladder, small and large intestines) were relocating and finding their "place". I hope you are feeling better soon!
