    Question Post-cesarean constipation stretched rectum?

    Ok, I have never heard of this & am embarrased to ask anyone. After my c-section about 9-1/2 months ago, I became very constipated - you might call it impacted (I'm not sure of the specific definition for that). Since then, my rectum seemed to be stretched out. Smaller pieces of stool get stuck & have to be directed to the anus to come out (I have to manually sort of pinch the area between my vagina and perineum to push the stool towards the anus). Is this a muscle-tone thing? Can I expect it to ever return to normal? Can I hurt myself by doing this? I have not really tried to see what happens if I don't do it, it seems to be very convenient. Larger bowel movements pass through with no problem.
