Hi Dani. TAH/BSO two weeks ago. I felt the same way--gas on day 3 and BM on day 4, after walking and full day of eating. On the advise of others on the site, found that green tea helped also. Also needed to keep pain managed. Also had stool softeners for 2 days. You will fine--just reach out! Take care.

I had my 2 week post op appointment yesterday and he is very happy with my progress. The down side was my dissolving sitches didn't dissolve and to help with the healing he had to remove them. OUCH!!! I don't care if I sound like a wimp. It hurt and I am wondering if my body of course starting to grow around them.

I go back in 6 weeks for my follow up which is a little disappointing since I still don't have the okay to drive, etc.

My doctor told me I was okay to go shopping yesterday and I did. I didn't over do it just picked up a few things but I didn't lift and I didn't push the cart but I did walk the whole time. Boy I was tired when we got home. I was hoping I would actually sleep through the night but of course not.

Hello Dani74
They should have started you on a stool softener such as colace or the store brand works too. It will not make you go but just soften the stool because the narcotics have a tendancy to bind things up and you do not want that. I had a vag hyster and ovaries removed so as for the swelly belly I don't have any advise. There are alot of women on here though that I am sure you will get some helpful ideas and support. Rest is good but so is moving around.... That will help with gas and I found that pain to be very uncomfortable. Please feel free to keep in touch. I have found that it helps to have people who have been though it to vent to and also for encouragement.

greentreefrog....there are lots of women here to give you support. Ask away....

Dani74...they gave me a dulcolax suppository in the hospital. It worked great. After I had been home 3 days w/o a bm, I used one and it got things going. I had been taking stool softeners as well, which was good, but it didn't get it moving, just made it soft enough not to be uncomfortable when I did. Good luck!
