I had a posterior repair and perienum reconstruction 3 months ago. I’ve been taking movicol daily ever since (my surgeon wants me to take it forever now to prevent straining) but I have two concerns - 1) I am so bloated and my tummy is so swollen. I know this is a side effect of movicol so I wondered if anyone had any remedies for it? I look 4 months pregnant all the time! 2) my bowels were much better after the op but in the last 2-3 weeks they’ve slipped back into their old habits. Is this is a sign the prolapse is back? I don’t want to take more movicol for fear of swelling even more but I’m so uncomfortable.
Is anyone else on movicol and experiencing the same side effect? Are there any alternatives? Any advice gratefully received.
