so, i had a csection nearly a week ago now and i still havent had a poo yet? i am on 2 iron tablets a day which i know can stop you going to the loo as much. i told my midwife i had been but i actualy hadnt. my parents aare getting worried saying could get poisned and stuff, is that right? did anyone els go this long?
Hi hun..I didn't go for about 5 days. It got so uncomfortable for me though, that I had to go to doc to get stool softener and Something to make me go. You don't want to have to push it out...a stool softener will help. Good luck
Hi, I didn't go for about a week either. Every time the midwife came, my Dh would tell on me and say I hadn't been!! She told me to get some lactulose, and after a day of being on that, I went and was soooo relieved!!!!
After i had LO i was on fibogel and lactulose, no issues! its fabby stuff, the fibogel i couldnt really take much but the lactulose isnt so bad, its like very sugary oil (sounds horrible but just have a glass of water beside you for when you take it)
All the best! xxxx
hey hun you need to eat foods that are really high in fibre like oats and nuts and pleanty of water... i suffer so bad with my bowels even when im not preganant but it is worse now as im taking iron... you could try liquid iron which isnt as harsh on your tummy also...and if you need a quick fix to help you go loo them try a laxative you can get liquid form and powder form they are grat the one i use is molaxol or lactulose... hope this helps xxx
