Bowel movements after hyst?

Well my update is that today I really got that urge to go, stomach cramps the works ..... I sat on the toilet for 3 hours!!! and nothing!!! except for a few 'rumbles'
Anyway we rang our nurse who then came around and gave me an enima but alas that hasnt worked either yet ..... but the stomach 'poo cramps' have stopped (for now anyway)
I might tomorrow get DH to go and buy me some Prune Juice and prunes to help me along .... if it wasnt for this Id feel sooo much better

It took a week for me, and I was quite uncomfortable the last couple of days! I'd been taking Colace three times a day and drinking water by the gallon but finally went ahead and tried Miralax. It was fantastic, worked the way it was supposed to with no discomfort or cramping. I highly recommend it!

It took me 5 days. They weren't going to release me until I had a BM, but I told them I wasn't regular anyway and it could be awhile so they let me go home. I did have a lot of gas pains though!

Congrats Chickette2!! When I had my first one I walked out of the bathroom and told my mom (who was taking care of me) and we both did a celebratory "YEAH" and clapping. Seems silly for adults to be applauding a poop, but it really IS a big deal!

Gee.. I am going to have my surgery on the 13th of Dec..and am worried, because I am usually on the other end... taking Lomotil to slow down my digestive system as it goes the other way. I wonder what will happen if it will take days to get it going again? it will be a certainly different experience for me, after 5 or 6 times a day!

I went the day after my surgery. I asked for extra salads, for ruffage from the caferteria, apple juice and prunes and had good results. Everything has been working well for me since. I drink apple juice and eat prunes when needed and have quick results. I can't imagine how painful your abdominen must have been with having no BM for so long. Bless your heart
