New sister here

Hi I had a robotic hysterectomy on a sept 28th so I’m a little over 3 weeks out. I had my uterus cervix and Fallopian tubes removed. I kept my ovaries. I struggled with my first bowel movement 4 days after surgery and strained myself. I since have been taking miralax and it’s helped but I still feel allot of pressure on my bowel and in my’s uncomfortable to stand for long periods of time or when I sit too long. I hope this is all normal.
