I had a revision bilateral microD and posterior lumbar decompression this past Monday. It's been 7 days since I've pooped. It takes me even 7 minutes to pee. I'm really scared. I've been taking 2 suppositories a day, 3 stool softeners a day, I've been drinking miralax and milk of magnesia every day and still nothing!!!! I'm really getting scared. It feels like the poop is right about to come out but I feel like I don't have control over the muscle to push it out. Is there anyway something could have gone wrong during surgery and I will never have control over my bowels? I'm 34 and this is my second l5-s1 microD in 7 months. PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH ANY HELP ASAP.
