I'm 3 weeks post anterior and posterior repair surgery. I have issues with constipation (from before surgery). I am using movicol, prunes juice and lots of fibrous food to help. But because I've been chronically constipated and had prolapse for at least 5 years, I'm worried about any damage from straining. What is the difference between pushing and straining? Is it normal to push a bit?
My tummy as swollen up (I look a bit pregnant!) and I've had some pains in the last few days. This is normal at this stage isn't it as stitches are tightening/dissolving.
Driving - my discharge notes say when I can an emergency stop without pain and concentrate. I've not really had any pain after the first few days, and think I can do this - how do you know without actually doing an emergency stop!
