I recently had a large skin tag and some hemorrhoids removed 2 days ago. I had a small BM the night of surgery. After the procedure I was given milk of magnesia 1 time. Initially, the physician wasn't going to discharge me until after I had a BM. Directly after the surgery, I had a hard time peeing, which resolved itself. Only a day after the surgery, I was discharged home. I was told nothing about stool softeners or diet! Since I got home last night, I have taken 2 OTC gelcap stool softeners, dose of exlax and just a minute a go, o dose of milk of magnesia. My stomach is distended and firm. I am 5 foot and only 105 lbs. I look like a little starved third world baby! Does anyone know if I can use a suppository? I'm really hungry, but I don't dare eat anything more solid. Its Sunday and the Dr's office is closed. I need help!!!
