How long is this going to take??? adult content

Okay so I had my son a week ago by c-section and I still havent had a bowel movement! I've been taking stool softeners, eating lots of fruit, yadda, yadda, yadda and still nothing...I've been passing gas on a regular basis and today it felt like something might finally happen....but nope...what is a normal time period after a c-section for having a bm and omg how bad is it going to hurt when I finally have one??? =o

  • I've had two babies by c-sec, and both times I do remember it took a while. Long enough that I was pretty worried, but all good. Just be patient and eat well, drink lots of water. (congrats on the new baby!)

  • Check with your doctor. My dr wouldn't let me leave the hospital until I had a bm.

  • I had to take Maalox (milk of magnesian, the laxative dose) before I could go, one time was enough and after that I had no problem staying regular.
