When is the last time you pooped? TMI...You've been warned. Update.
For me it was last Tuesday. That is the last time I pooped by myself. I had a c-section on Wednesday and since then I haven't been able to poop. It's so bad that today I've been wearing gloves and literally digging poop out of my butt. I've taken stool softeners at least twice a day and had milk of magnesia two days ago. It was so bad this morning that I couldn't sit down without feeling the poop. I have hemorrhoids now and can feel them when I'm digging the poop out. Sorry I've been so graphic but I can't really talk to anyone about this and it sucks. My doctor told me to do an enema but I seriously don't know how that's going to help when the poop is right there and it won't be able to get in. I'm going to try to do it tomorrow after I've gotten some more poop out. it really hurts too. :(
I tried an enema and was only able to get a part of it in because the salt burned my anal fissure. But that helped. I've had two (very small) BMs where I didn't have to do anything to get it to work. It's not fixed now but it is better. Thanks for all of the advice and funny stories. :)
