For your episiotomy relief was black tea bags (boil them and make sure that the tea is really really dark, the pour the tea into a squirt bottle, squirt away....then take the hairdryer and dry the area on low cool for about 3 minutes. After it is good and dry, spray with Dermaplast. This has been the lifesaving ritual that I have been using for the last couple of days and I can tell a HUGE difference...mine had even dr gave me a rx for a vaginal cream antibiotic (use 1/wk for 3 weeks) and that made a HUGE difference also.

Good luck to gentle with yourself and NO LIFTING with the episiotomy care.

Best Wishes!

BM problems

Gross? No way! We're human. I know how ya feel. I had TAH-BSO on 3/12 and I've had terrible problems with gas pains and constipation. I'm taking Gax-X after every meal and at bedtime along with 1 Ducolax each meal and bedtime.

I'm eating a couple Tblsp of applesauce a day. 1/2 c All Bran Buds. Then a cup or so of prune juice when I think of it. It seems to be working pretty well. I have had to take Milk of Magnesia twice. Take the liquid. The pills don't work.

Hang in there. Trust me I know it's hard. I'm a week into this recovery thing and I'm already stir crazy!
