loose stools

I was wondering if anyone else was dealing with loose stools after surgery? This is day 9 of my recovery and I'm still dealing with issues like the rest of you ladies. Besides the pain, gas and insomnia, I have loose stools. Does anyone deal with this? Before surgery I use to deal with constipation a lot. Is this normal after surgery for some? Thanks my friends

loose stools

Hi Beach,

I used to have loose stools after surgery and attributed that to the antibiotic Cipro, prescribed for 10 days.

Did your DR prescribe anything for you?

Just read some of the posts about constipation and you will be grateful for this problem.

loose stools

it is not a problem for me now but, boy.... 6-9 day after my surgery did I have the runs, then dealt with that about 4 days past that again. It isn't an issue now. I did see my doc for my post op and told him about this. I thought constipation as suppposed to be a problem. He said that having loose stoll was normal considering the pre-surgery prep, and the surgery itself. I thought my bout with the runs was from all the stool softener after the surgery and the prunes I was eating also. I know that didn't help my situation either. Life is "good' now.
