Yes thats exactly how it is for me! Feels like awful paralyzing cramping right before bm, the the actual bm is slow and difficult. I am at 12 weeks and am getting this! I am finding standing , sitting and walking uncomfortable too so am going to call my doc today for a checkup. I have lower back pain too but usually that loosens up as the day goes by. Feel better!

Hi again,

Don't forget hormones or lack there of play a part in this too. Yep me too pace. I have a somebloating around what used to be that time of month and hotflashes and mood swings. from what I was told that could last upto six months until the body either gets used to no hormones or if your on therapy or you still have one or both overies, it balances out. it takes time. Just keep in mind that this is a major operation. I would definately talk to doc about the pain though. My doc is having me go through a ct scan just to make sure no cysts or legions or anything have grown on the abdominal wall. I did pop a stitch the first time I went to the bathroom. And I also got an infection as well. Fortunately for me it didn't do to much damage. My Doc was excellent in that he put several stitches in just in case. I am a lucky lady.

Hi again,
I just wanted to give a word of encouragement to all of you that are suffering from your recent hyst. I had 2 large tumors (1 on, 1 in my uterus). Last March I started having problems urinating..ouch!!! After some wait and see and many Dr.'s later, not to mention many episodes of not peeing, tests confirmed compression of my bladder by a tumor. In Oct. I had an abd. hyst. with cervix removal (opted to keep ovaries). I lost 1/2 my blood volume during a 4 1/2 hour surgery. I also developed a bladder infection and an allergic reaction to the pain meds. post -op. Nausea and pain were my constant companions! However, with the love and support of my husband, children, best friend...not to mention Gas-x.,M.O.M,stoolsofteners,Metamucil, water, water, water and tears I am now pain free for 2weeks. LIFE GETS BETTER! I truly tried to rest as much as humanly possible (even though I thought I'd die from boredom) told myself "THIS TO SHALL PASS!"

hey Desiree22, thanks for taking the time to answer! I did go to my doc today, he says he will treat it as bladder inf but is wondering about maybe just "things" are getting into place. I had a large fibroid and ended up with uterus/cervix removal, so i guess alot got shifted around. I will see how it goes, i have a paper to get a ultra sound if it doesn't subside, i don't want anymore of those though, thanks!

My dr. started me on stool softeners twice a day the day after surgery. He also had me get Phazyme twice a day for the gas pain. I went for a week without a BM - which was ok with me but everyone else was worried about it. I started eating bran cereal for breakfast and apples a lot. Then I finally had one. Once that first one was over, then I too faced the opposite with spending all day in the restroom. I am on day #13 since surgery and things are working normally for me. Don't eat bananas or things that would consitpate you. Also, if you are taking the pain medication, this is a huge cause for constipation. My dr. told me that. I went a day without pain medicine and no antibiotic (had finished those) and viola. I hope these hints will help you all.

Good whew glad too see that you are taking care of it pace. I'd be interested to know if it helps with the pain in a few days. Wow awesome hints Morris. I too felt the pain meds were making things a bit worse, so just started taking tylenol instead. Needed to keep taking the antibiotics tho because I had open heart surgery when I was small. I'm still on those. I had fibriods, legions in my uterus, cysts and endo on one of my overies. I am still trying to figure out what would make body parts go so "scratches head". Never anyways its so cool to talk about it to someone. I really appreciate that because no one in my part of the woods has ever had to go through it. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone.
