Ugh... If I have to to pee or hve a bowel movement or even a gas pain I feel like someone is stabbing me... Like um... Tmi... Up my hiney. It's the worst pain in the world. It almost feels like a horrible leg cramp that you can't stop from tightening up. Makes me freeze and break out in a sweat bc it hurts so badly. My bladder-- I almost feel like I can't empty it bc it hurts to do that. Maybe my insides are adjusting? Idk but I am so uncomfy :( anyone else have any issues remotely like this?

As long as you are able to have bm's I wouldnt worry. No doubt its uncomfy, but a lot of your parts are readjusting.

That doesn't sound familiar. I think maybe you should call your doctor.

 You should get GAS-X and a stool softner. Thats what I got after all of my c-sections.

 With any major surgery down there you shouldn't have to strain to go to the bathroom it will cause pain if you do. Get a stool softener and if it doesn't help you go, then ask your doctor about a laxative. Trust me you do not want to get constipated after surgery. As far as it hurting to urinate, I would definitely call the dr about that, that is not normal.

With all 4 of my cesareans I had severe gas pain and a very painful time going to bathroom. Even trying to pee hurt for a while. How long ago was our c-section?

I had my c section on June 29th. I'm not constipated at all. I can go but going is the most painful thing in the world. I have taken gas x and it's not helping :( idk I guess I'll call the doc. This is my second c section. I didn't do this 4 years ago with my last.

I have had 3 c-sections and never had that issue. I have dealt with some painful bowel movements but never any issues with my bladder. It would not hurt to call your doctor. I hope you feel better soon!
