My stomach and...

incision hurt so bad...

i don't think it's just the incision as much as it is the loose stools every thirty minutes...i was on clear liquids for six days- three days before my surgery and well the three days following the surgery before i could start on regular food again...

i started on real food a week ago- then i couldn't have bm after i got home so i took some stool softners and colace- that was three days ago that i took the last one because they weren't doing anything so i stopped taking them...then this morning i can't seem to stop running to the bathroom- literally running!

anybody else having these wonderful syptoms

My stomach and...

Oh, man, I had the same problem. In fact, I had loose stools off and on until last week when I finally switched from oral to cream in my compounded hormones.

I did notice that acidophilus helped, along with eating several small meals, higher protein in the morning/at lunch with lots of veggies and carbs in the afternoon/evening. I also added flax seed to my diet for the fiber and the lignans, and that slowed things down some. So did, crazily enough, drinking lots of water, soy milk and unsweetened Gatorade-type-drinks.

Good luck!

shredded wheat, water and benefiber!!! gr8 product. Tablets or powder to sprinkle on food. It works. and if you lay down try "gently" pushing from rib/ stomach to lower belly in circular motion, not too hard of course. Just enough to get things moving.
