1 day post op da vinci hysterectomy

I had my hysterectomy on Monday the 22nd. My surgery went very well. The day before surgery my doctor told me to drink magnesium citrate so my bowels would be empty. Well the morning of surgery I still hadn't had a bowel movement and now it's a day after surgery and still no activity. I've been taking stool softeners at the same time I take my pain pills. I indeed have the "swelly belly" and even had my husband take a picture. On a pain scale from 1-10, I would say I'm a 2-3 which is pretty good. My tummy itches like crazy and the steri tapes started coming off on the first day home. All in all this hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be.

I didn't before mine either and did not until day 4 maybe. Somewhere in there. Hang in there. It'll come.

I was told to increase my fiber intake with over-the-counter powdered formulas that are mixed with liquid. There's one that does not produce gas that is especially good, but any means of getting fiber is better than none at all! Keep up your liquids as well. My best to you! (I'm four weeks post-op for a DaVinci hysterectomy.)

Re: 1 day post op da vinci hysterectomy

if it is okay with your doctor...try milk of magnesia and the colace or whatever brand of stool softener you have...

worked like a charm for me!
