Might be TMI... so sorry if it is lol but i need some answers!!

For anyone that had a c-section...the dr told me that its normal to not have a BM for a few days after the section... its been a week though, and still no BM ive been taking stool softener that my dr said to take daily and still nothing. i can feel that i need to and its right there and i sit on the toilet for a good 15 min but nothing happens.... its frustrating! lol

i cant really push because of my incision.


so my question is.. for those of you that had a c section, how long did it take you to have a bowel movement??

  • keep going with the softners as when you do finally go it makes it easier. ad call doc for advice too...sorry this is happening, I did not have a section but the stool softeners really do help.
