First BM 4 days post op

Hello sisters,
Well it finally happened. Whoohooo, I had my first BM. I even got applause from DH & kids! I must admitt I was nervous heading into the bathroom but I've been taking the softner and I waited until it was ready without being forced. I'm happy to say..... All went smoothly. My belly actually feels a little less bloated. I'm so glad that's over with. Sisters, where else can we talk about BM and have others be happy for us. Good luck to all of u they r almost there.

Re: First BM 4 days post op

Yes, for the first time I am more than eager to talk about bms!!! Congratulations to you... I know how relieved you feel to get past that first one!!!

I've loved posts here, where the bm was compared to labor, and where 'poo dust' is considered a delightful gift. Like yours, my first bm seemed a long time in coming, was longed for but feared, and passed much easier than expected.

Best wishes as you move forward in recovery. Seek out fiberous foods, drink lots of liquids, and move around as much as you are comfortable doing, since too much inactivity can really slow things down.

There will be good days and challenging days, but these boards are so helpful and encouraging so keep posting your progress. Excelsior!
