Yes it is normal! Two and a half weeks is not a long time since your surgery, in the grand scheme of things. I'd expect some pain with bm's for a good six weeks or so --- that's how it was for me when I had the A&P repairs with my hyst. Hang in there!~ Patience is a virtue!

I was sent home on colace twice a day. I was told to stay on it for several weeks.I had loose stools and barely made it to the bathroom in time the first few weeks. Unfortunately the constipation issue returned and I am still dealing with it.
I would say what you are feeling is normal. Hang in there. It will get better!

((((Coffeelover)))) While almost 3 weeks may seem like forever, it's actually a very short time after such a major surgery.... especially since you also had complications!!! And it can't really be compared to a C-Section: the baby is meant to come out, that isn't the case for the repairs!!!

Do give yourself a chance to recover. If need be, have your friends and relatives take a look at the pelvic floor.com website: it's very descriptive and explains clearly the surgery

Regarding the pain meds: be careful to not take too many, as they may increase constipation issues, something you want to stay away after these repairs. After my hyst with repairs, I would only take the pain meds when absolutely needed.
