jessicasmummy Mon 16-May-05 14:00:13

disolvable stitches so just trying to take it easy and not do too much - fantastic dh i have!

Newbarnsleygirl Mon 16-May-05 14:02:12

Great, glad to hear your up and about. I take it the bean is good also?

jessicasmummy Mon 16-May-05 14:04:22

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!!!!

As for the... ahem (I shall not say the word) it could be a trip to the docs for some cream.

Lonelymum Mon 16-May-05 14:06:38

JM, did you have to strain to use the loo after your op? That might have brought on piles. Hard luck. You could have really done without this couldn't you?

jessicasmummy Mon 16-May-05 14:06:58

ewww.... no thanks! would rather buy something at the chemist than have a doc look at my bum!

jessicasmummy Mon 16-May-05 14:07:51

thats just it - i havent been since the op - had the urge but nothing - guess im right in thinking it is then?

Lonelymum Mon 16-May-05 14:09:09

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.

JM I had them MW gave me some cream but also suggested (although I did not do this) get crushed ice and wrap in lots of kitchen towel and put up yor bottom

Although my mum just wanted to know if she could use the cream on her eyes

jessicasmummy Mon 16-May-05 14:10:10

cream on her eyes?! i wont ask!!!

maybe try the ice thing!

golds Mon 16-May-05 14:14:15

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

jessicasmummy Mon 16-May-05 14:15:11

not on anything other than paracetemol. had been on codeine (sp?) and some antibiotics earlier in the week tho - last poo was friday morning!

alibubbles Mon 16-May-05 14:19:47

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!

golds Mon 16-May-05 16:52:37

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.

simone131182 Mon 16-May-05 17:17:49

hi try buying some senacot (sp) or see if u can buy some lactulose if u can they are fantasic hope u get it sorted but as allibubbles said try anusol frm boot or something like it xxxxxxxxxx
