How do you fix constipation post a hemrhoidectomy ?

I had a hemrhoidectomy performed 5 days ago and am struggling with constipation. I take Metamucil and collace twice daily. I am eating high fibre vegetables, fruit and cereal only. I dring two litres of water each day. I tried two tablespoons of magnesia on day three and four respectively with no luck. I am taking oxeycodene for pain which I know isn't helpful for constipation but necessary for pain management. Yesterday I started pooping a dime sized pellet twice but have a constant urge to go so doc suggested an enema which was crazy painful but got two more poops out that we're bigger but still hard. I went once more on my own after the Enema and it was also very hard. Has anyone out there had a similar experience or have any advice?

Re: How do you fix constipation post a hemrhoidectomy ?

I suffer IBS and can have either D or C or sometimes both.
I have found figs to never let me down and you could try two in the a.m and two in the p.m.
It dosent matter if they are fresh or dried. It certainly works for me.
I wish you well,

I have done the hemrhoidectomy last week, Please try this Miralax and drink mineral oil.
Also drink the organic sena smooth move tea, not the sena tablet, just the tea, you will find it flowing good.
