So as some may know I just had an abdominal hernia repaired on friday and I am having problems. This all my be TMI but I have not had a bowel movement since before surgery and the pain meds are making me constipated.and my hernia was a traditional repair so the muscle was stitched together so I CANNOT push.. if you know what I mean. Also as my intestines move its causing me pain in the surgical site. I am just soooo uncomfortable guys!! and I have taken quite a few stool softeners/laxatives with no prevail. I am so uncomfortable and in pain and just bloated... any suggestions?
