8 days post hysterectomy, having trouble making a BM. What should I do?

So I thought I was doing good in this department. I am 8 days out and have had several bowel movements, large ones with no problem. Now I feel this pressure in my rectum like there is stool
There that wants to come out but i am not allowed to push it out! I am walking and sitting on the toilet every 15 min or so and I am having a little increased blood now. Not sure what to do?

Re: Poop question

Take a stool softener (Colace) drink more water, eat a lot of fiber, walk, try prune juice also.

Re: Poop question

Yes, I agree, take a stool softener. Take 2 per day for a week or two. And drink lots of water. Don't worry, it will come out when it is ready!
