    Post operative painkillers can cause constipation but I'm assuming that you have stopped those now.  Are you taking any other medication that could be causng this? How much water do you drink? Perhaps you need to increase you uptake of liquid and fibre rich foods. Are you trying any laxatives? Did the doctor prescribe anything? I don't understand the last sentence of your post. muscs?

      I don't take any painkillers now. Not taking any other medication. Drink about 7 pints of water a day. I have a rich fibre diet but after about a few fork full I feel so bloated. I have tried laxatives. The doctor prescribed a laxatives for me. It like a slime when I do open my bowels
