BM, Stool softener, pain

I have had bowel movements since the 2nd day after my surgery 12-27.. I just don't feel like I've gone all I can. I have not taken stool softeners until now. I went this afternoon. It was extremely painful and I felt really sick afterwards. I did not put pressure or anything but now my stomach is cramping really bad. I took my pain meds and I took a softener for next time. Any ideas?

It does take awhile for the stool softeners to work. I took them on a regular basis for about 2 weeks just to make sure I wouldn't hurt anything. Have you taken anything for gas?

You're pretty early in recovery yet and may well be having trouble with intestinal gas as Lauri mentioned. Gas-X can be extremely helpful. As well, keep walking and drinking water. With stool softeners you should take extra water. Hope you feel better soon!

I think you can have gas without actually passsing a lot of gas though which causes many of these feelings. Hope you get to feeling better. I haven't had trouble with BMs and still find them a little scary.

Oh, even a warm compress. That seems to feel really well if you have those kind of pains. I have a bag with corn I heat in the microwave. You could even put rice or dried beans in a pillow case and tie off the end to heat up.
