Hoping Matron or some of you other ladies can help.
I have had a few BM accidents where I couldn;t hold the need to go long enough to get to the tiolet. . It's about taking the stool softeners. How long should we be taking them for? I was taking a softener with Senna just once a day until someone pointed out it can be additive, then I swapped to Coroxyl without henna and was taking 2 morning and night and now taking just 1 M & N but I am finding that my BM is and I aplogise if TMI soft and there is a fair bit of it that I don't get much warning and once it starts I can often have an accident which I obviously don't want while I am out or at work. Sorry for making this post long. Should I stop the softeners I am going down to just one tonight but worry if I stop I might strain or at 6 weeks post op is it now safe to stop? Will I gain the BM control back? Have other ladies had these issues? I am seing my specialist this tuesday and will ask him. Fingers crossed all is well and op was succesful. Happy healing ladies xx
