Sos I Cant Poop!!!!! =( Caution May Be Tmi **UPDATE**

Hello my sisters
I am home now for the 8th day.... TAH March 27th, I am still having trouble having a BM. Never thought at this young age (50 ) i would be talking about my discomfort of not takinga poop. No one told me in the hospital to take Durelax but starting taking after being home 3 days. I also cryed the first time i finally went, but that was 2 days ago and i am taking Durelax regularly and still having trouble going. I was a "regular pooper" before surgery...lol My friends and co-workers keep calling to see how i am which is great, but all i want to do is sleep. Is that normal? i cant be bothered with visitors cause i never know when the gas pockets are gonna be the big one that lets it all loose......I just wanta be regular again, and stay awake more than 6 - 8 hours.....Please Help !!!!!!

OK, first, let me reassure you that this level of exhaustion is quite normal at this point! Your body is working really, really hard to just recover from surgery. You may feel like you're not doing anything, but your body is working overtime!

Next, about the pooping: Consider adding a stool softener or two at bedtime (these are not the same as laxatives!) Also, a recipe I read on these very boards that was very helpful the first week or two post-op: mix 1/2C prune juice, 1/2C All-Bran flakes and 1/2C applesauce; add cinnamon and some sugar for flavor if you want. Eat two TBSP at bedtime. Your bowels will love you in the morning!

Best of luck!
