FAO sisters who have had anterior and posterior repairs

Hi Jacklyn
I had my surgery on the Tuesday and a bm on the Friday. It wasn't just a bm though, I had diarrea too. It was just as bad as straining cos I had to be sat there a long time and I really felt like I was exploding! Jane is right, stool softeners and laxatives should be used initially. I still use mine and I am 11 weeks post op. I suffered with constipation anyhow so it's nothing new to me!
((((((((((Jane))))))) Thanks again for your reply. I had a feeling that this was gonna be a lifetime thing now. I do still have the bulge, but then again, I still haven't rested much. It really doesn't look like swelling. I feel a downward pressure too, or is this too a recurrent feeling? I had a fall today too. I tripped and almost did the splits with one leg behind me. Something pulled and I am sore but all looks the same! It's just one thing after another!
((((((((Michelle))))))))Thanks for your reply. I can just see you sitting shaking your head and your finger at me! I truly understand and agree with what you are saying, and that is what I should have done. All said in hindsight. I felt good. I guess I wasn't as good as I felt. But it felt good to be in control of something again! I think if I hadn't picked up the bug..........
I am struggling to rest with Christmas a few days off, it's really special to our family. I intend to put my feet up as soon as dinner is served and stay like that for a week or so!
Thanks sisters

OK, that bony finger is making its way into the air again. Oh no you don't. Am I reading "elaborate preparations" in between the lines? Busted!

IMHO, the specialness of Christmas is in the memories we make together. Its not about an elaborate meal, or decorations or even the presents. Its about time spent with those whom we treasure most. Of course, this is just my opinion.

I urge you, even if your priorities and/or value system is very different than mine, to get help if you must have an elaborate celebration. It should not all fall on your shoulders. It can not. Not this year. Ask for help! Make a "to do" list and assign out tasks. Be the project manager.

Lots of s

I'm with Michelle. You might be surprised at how willing your family is to pitch in and help. Last year my husband did most of the shopping, my son did the cooking and my daughter did the cleaning and decorating. They didn't do it exactly the way I would have, but I really appreciated their efforts.

I've also noticed that in the year since my surgery that my family helps out around the house a little more. It's been an unexpected but very welcome benefit!

Good for you! Ask and it shall be given to you. See help and you will find it!

My family is also much more helpful than they used to be and you know what ... I don't need it half as much as I used to, but I'll take it!

Thanks for sharing and

Well, I called my doctor and she told me to use a suppository! I was scared to death but it worked, so now I am taking the softeners and magnalox. What I have noticed is that it feels different having a bm. Must be because my rectum is in the right spot! Now if I only could get my husband to understand why I must rest. How can I get it thru his thick skull that it take time to heal? Jackie
