Toilet Trauma!?

Hello, I had my op on the 2nd January and have still not managed to pass stools without using a suppository......has or is anybody else having this difficulty?

I am eating linseeds, prunes, vegetables, low carbs, fruit, drinking two litres of water p/day and still no action.

If anybody can shed any light it would be greatly appreciated. It feels as though my muscles do not work anymore.

Thanks :0)

Poggy,

It can take some time to get back to normal. It took me about 3 1/2 weeks till I was running "moving normal" Everyone is different by most people here, including me, swear my MoM.

Thank you that makes me feel better, having had a quick look around the forums it seemed that most people had natural movement after a few days which caused the concern.

I did everything you did and it wasn't the prunes but good ol' prune juice that got things going - a huge glass in the afternoon and by morning the plumbing was working again.

Isn't recovery just one discovery after another!?

I was also constipated and tried everything. Nothing worked well until I got some aloe vera bitters (pill form, can't be just the juice) from the health food store. Worked like a charm. I had normal BM the next day, which felt so much better. Wish you well!

I Too Thought I Was The Only One Having Bowel Problems. My Bowels Were Encased In Massive Scar Tissue That Required A Lot Of Manipulation During Surgery To Free Them. According To My Gyn/surgeon, The Bowels Are Not That Tolerating When It Comes To Being Moved Ar0und, So It May Take A While To Get Things Working Again. He Put Me On A New Medication That's Supposed To Stimulate Them. Haven't Taken Any As Of Yet. I'm Already On Pain Meds, Iron Meds, Stool Softner Meds, Suppositories. Good Luck!

It has teken me a while and I am four weeks out. My doctor finally told me to ask for this clear pop like drink from the pharmacist, and OMG, I thought I was going to give birth (Its not a prescription) ! Once I was cleaned out, things started to work better. Between the surgery and the pain pills, I think its alot for our bowels to handle.

Oh I am so glad to hear someone else had the same problem. Sorry!!!!!!!!!!
I had surgery on the 26th of December and was getting concerned after a week. I thought I was going to blow I was so full and swollen.

I was told to take Gasx for the swelling and wait. I did and after about 1 week. Aah. I chose to go the natural way. Was not real comfortable, but eventually the plumbing returns to normal. I also had some minor discomfort when the bowels started to move, but all is well.

Wishing u the best
