Glycerin Suppository 4 days post op?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi all.

The discomfort of not going to the toilet is driving me insane now. I'm drinking lots of water and taking lactulose and a glass of prune juice every day. Took a Ducolax tablet Saturday and nothing happened. Took another yesterday and still nothing. 

Have read online somewhere that it says do NOT take suppositories or enemas.

but I need some relief and am terrified of going, but thinking of just going for it.

i am passing some huge gloopy lumps of blood, thought it was wind going through me but its gloopy blood. Not clots, it's more fresh than clots, just very thick. Is this normal? Had hardly any discharge in hospital, it started last night.

As always, any help or advice greatly appreciated!

  • Posted have 'been'!      These type of ops take a while to get over and pain is a feature of all of them. Some ladies take quite a while to get relief and take painkillers for some time. Eveybody is different so dont think you are not healing properly if that is the case. My mantra is recovery takes 100 days and expect 1% improvement each day. We live in a fast pace world and expect our bodies to know that,but they dont and will do what they want in terms of recovery. Lots of rest is the answer and NO lifting .
