bean is fine - when the doc eventually came and checked 24 hours after surgery!!! Even then was pissed off at having to check heartbeat - even said to me "are you hapy now - u knew baby was fine" - if i had known, i wouldnt have asked him to come check!!!!
Know how you feel about doc looking at your bum JM. I had an anal fissure after ds1 and endured agony every time I did a poo for about 7 months! In the end, the pain drove me to the doc's and yes she did examine me "there" but it wasn't half as bad as the pain I had been enduring. Getting it sorted also made up for the humiliation.
I haven't been to the 'loo' much since my recent surgery and when I have its painful. Ask the doc for some mild laxitive (can't remember the name) it really does work. My pain killers are part of the reason I cn't go, are you on any ?
Whatever you do, I don't recommend taking Andrews it was so violent, I was on the loo for 2 hours take care
Try some Fybogel, ( a drink in different flavours, can get it in Sainsburys or chemist) it softens the stool and makes it easier to pass. Get some prep H or anusol cream, works wonders on itch bums, soothing too!
One of codeine side effects is constipation, thats what I am on. Just remebered name of medicine Lactulose, very mild, you take it at night and in the morning it works. (can be bought over counter) I have proof of that as I forgot to take some last night and I can't go today. My iron tablets also cause it, so at the moment am getting a double dose of it. Good luck and hope you find some relief soon.
