4 days post hysterectomy 10/3: BM help - **UPDATED** 10/7

Hello ladies. I'm new here. I'm looking for advice on having a bowl movement after surgery. I'm four days it and backed up. I've tried stool softener and even though I'm not supposed to I took a mild laxitive. No help so far. Help please

Re: Help after surgery

I called my Dr. after 4 days, he said I could take senakot. Tried it last night and had bm this morning. I've been drinking lots of water too. Needless to say, I still have gas pains and more pelvic pain now that my bowels are moving again... good luck.

Same here. I think I have been slacking on the water, but I've been up walking, and taking my stool softener, but nothing.

I had some success this afternoon. Took sometime. I think between the procedure and the pain meds it's just difficult. Thank you so much for the suggestions and I wish everyone luck.

Re: Help for bowel movements after surgery

I was 3 days after surgery before having a bowel movement. Was on 2 different stool softners....finally took a 1/2 dose of Milk of Magnesia and success!! I am 3 1/2 weeks post op but still have some problems. Still having gas cramps too...I am now drinking warm prune juice mixed with some water, heated...This has been the worst part of surgery I feel like all I think about are my body functions!!!
Hopefully, this will get better.

I hope so as well. And your right since this started that's all that's been on my mind. How will my body adjust and how will it behave after. I just started a new relationship two months ago and he's been wonderful through it all.

Re: Help for bowel movements after surgery

Hey, if he makes it thru this, he is definitely a keeper!! My hubby of 47 years is probably sick and tired of hearing me shouting out if I have pooped or not Oh, this isn't for the faint hearted....
Good luck to you !!

He told me today he loves me so I'm thinking we are going to make it. He's been very good to me from the start and has treated me like gold since the surgery.

Sounds like a keeper. I was 8 days into my married life when I found out I needed a hysterectomy. He has also been helpful, although the whole process scares him I think. He doesn't want me to do anything and my mom said he didn't sit down the whole 3 1/2 hours I was in surgery. I'm so glad you have a good support through this.
