Help ! 2 weeks after surgery
I had a hysterectomy july 13th, and ever since then, I've really had trouble with my bowel movements. They are very painfull, and the gas pain is terrible.
I just started back to work again, because other than my bowels, I feel pretty good.
Is this normal ? ( problem with bowels after surgery? ) I feel bloated, and irriatable, but not in too much pain. I can't push at all when I am taking a bowel movement, I just have to sit and wait.....and sit and wait.
Would it be alright to take a laxitave ? Stool softener ? I dont want my body to become to used to them. I was having to take 4 iron pills daily for 2 to 3
months before surgery, so I also took stool softeners then too.
I also have a flabby handle around my waist, above the cut, that wasnt there before, will that eventually go away? Is that just part of my abdomen healing ? My body looks normal everywhere else, but there.
Also, how long does one have this pinkish,yellowish, redish discharge after surgery? Is that normal too?
Sorry, I'm just a wreck, any comments would be so helpfull and appreciated.
