One suggestion, if the laxitive doesn't help, don't delay. Get a mild enemia from the store or Milk of Magnesia. Don't let it go too long, it will only make it worse !!!

Question Re: day two post-op

Hi, Tracy, get a stool softner from the drug store, something like colace, it will help. Also, what was your surgery? you didn't have to stay long in the hospital. Valley

Re: day two post-op

i went into surgery about 11am friday morning, it was a lamonecity and diskteomey., I can't spell real good. I got out Sat around 9:30am. I took another pill, and I finally did do number 2 late this afternoon. No Saturday morning in the hospital I was ready to go home. Because I had done been up walking friday 2 hours after my surgery, because they did not have a foley in me.. so i had get up and boy did hurt, but the more I got the better it got. Now around 4am sat morning i had to go the bathroom and that hurt sooooo bad.. And I can't sleep on my back right now, I have to sleep on my sides.. does anybody know who long it will be before I can sleep on my back?? just wondering and how long does it take for the sworness to go away? ahhh. That is the main problem. My whole bottom half from my rib cage to my kidney's is sworeeeeeee.. Ok I am going to take another shower.. Talk ya later. Tracy
