Hi - new here. I am two weeks out from my surgery. It was done with a spinal anesthesia done vaginally. Had my 2 week appointment with my GYN who also did my hysterectomy in 2000. I went in wondering if I had an infection. He checked me and said no everything was fine. That the bad soreness was from the episiotomy and the cramping I had was normal.
Has anyone else had this procedure done with a spinal anesthesia? Initially I had no bowel movement for 3 Days although before discharge from the hospital had normal urination (Cath removed) & was passing gas. Took daily Colace and Miralax & at 3 days did Fleets and finally had Bowel movement (haha lost 5 lbs on the scale). Since then have continued on Colace daily, Miralax etc. My main problem is what feels like menstrual cramps all the time (or also like cramps when you're having intestinal issues). I do have history of IBS & Fibromyalgia also lumbar facet issues L4 to S1. Frustrated with this pain. After days, also eating good diet with fruits veges etc just added Dulcolax suppository this morning and finally went!!! Anyone else have this issue??
Also so tired... which is also complicated by having adrenal Insufficiency for which I am on Prednisone for life. Any comments would be so helpful... As I sit here with a heating pad on my lower abdomen!!
Thank you ... Reading posts here has made me feel less alone! ??
