My DH had major back surgery a week ago tomorrow, they have him on A LOT of narcotics which we all know can constipate you. Our worry is that he hasnt really been able to go. He says he has the urge to go and when he sits down all he does is pass gas. His stomach hurts to touch now, he is sore to take breathes, he has no appetite what so ever to eat, and his stomach is distended. We have tried stool softeners as well as suppositories. Nothing seems to be working.
Is there ANY advice that can be given to help me try to help him. He basically is telling me he wants to avoid a hospital at all cost, but I think we are running out of options.
