I haven't been able to poop since thursday morning before my surgery. I have taken a stool softener every night. I have also taken miralax 3 times, ate Activia yogurt, drank tons of water, have been walking around, and even tried an enema. Yeah none of it worked.
Well I developed a 101.8 fever today. The on call doc said to go to the ER right away. My white blood count is elevated. The CT scan revealed my uterus is swollen. But said that's normal after surgery. There was also some air and fluid in my abdomen. Which they said was hard to say if its from just having surgery or if it could be a perforated bowel. I have also had terrible abdomenal pain. To the point I was shaking and had the dry heaves. They have no clue what is causing the pain.
So the ER doc has admitted me. I'm getting IV antibiotics because I obviously have an infection somewhere. They want to monitor me and I'm about to drink more miralax.
I'm pretty scared I could have a bowel obstruction. I just have no clue why I'm not able to poop. I've eaten actual food and meals since surgery...so there should be some poop that needs to come out. Lol
Sorry for all the tmi...I'm just super nervous there could be something really wrong.
