Re: BM's not till the 6th day!!!

I think it was on Friday (my surgery was Tuesday of last week) that I finally had a bowel movement. It wasn't difficult at all, but I had been taking the stool softeners since I got home on Wednesday. Then on Sunday, I had diarrhea and decided to back off the stool softeners. Then today, it was difficult to pass again, so I took another stool softener. Argh! No happy medium! I guess we have to be patient and let our bodies start to regulate by themselves again.

Stool softners alot of water. Not being active slows it down too and pain meds. Now you may find this weird but. I ate some sugarfree chocolate and it acts like a laxitive. So I figured it taste good and make you poop haha.
