I hate pooping.....

I agree with the miralax it works wonders. I was given it from doctor on my 4day and it took another 24 hours before I was going poo without intense pain and spasms. Hang in there ladies it does get easier. I still get the odd bladder spasm. but my life is finally getting better.

I had the same problem. I would go days w/o going. I was also taking everything they told me until a fellow hyster sister recommended Miralax. WoW! Not even 6 hours later I was all cleared out & never had to take it again. It's a miracle! Also, the pain meds are supposed to be very constipating, so try to ease up on those too if you haven't already. Good Luck!

I totally understand as well. I can feel the "Traveling" and rock back and forth in pain. I am also taking colace and am going just so much pain. Every time a gas bubble comes along it feels like giving birth! I hate it! I am going to try the Miralax today. I just thought it was part of healing I had to deal with.

I was having trouble also & my doctor told me to get Dulcolax and take 2 per day 8 hours apart -- what a great thing -- I don't have to strain or bear down and it does not hurt to go..

Hang in there,

Hi I had my hysterectomy on december 5 , 2007 and I was doing fine going to the bathroom and over the holidays I ate greasy foods and stuff that made me worse again I went to my 4 week follow up today and I told my gyno I was sore and felt gasey feeling in my left side he said he thought it was where I ate to much over the holidays.This scares me he said that my incisions look great and I told him I had vacuumed 2 days after Christmas and took my ornaments off the tree and put them up.he said I can do whatever I like he told me that after one week of surgery.I had my ovaries removed had already had my uterus removed in 2000 .I had to have ovaries removed do to cysts problems.The cyst was so big it was stuck to every organ in the area.I am sore in left side but he really didn't seem to think it was a big deal at all.I really like my gyno though he is very caring and he told me to get some aloe vera juice and drink one 8oz glass everyday and take one peppermint gel capsule everyday and that should help get my stuff back in order I hope so my stomach is still swollen from surgery plus gas.

Boy, the descriptions of that "travelling" feeling after eating: me too. After breakfast I walk around the house and about one hour later, pronounced gut pain doubles me over. Last few days I've had success on the toilet within 1/2 hour of that. What's been working for me, so far is:

colace after every meal
citrucel 2-3 tsp at bedtime

I see that most of you are having success with Miralax, but Citrucel seems to work best for me.

Good luck everyone!
