I know that some of you have problems with your bowels post op constipation etc. When did your problems resolve?
I am 3 months post op and I don't know if I am having trouble due to the surgery of something else. I still have problems with constipation and take Colace daily. I have lots of pain on the left side of my abdomen. I can feel everything moving through (sorry if this is too gross!).
Tonight I have lots of pain and can feel hard places on my left side and I am not constipated. My stomach also looks bloated tonight and it has not looked this way for the last 2 months.
Do any of you ALIF people have this or a similar issue going on or did your's resolve? My belly is soft but it is tender. It is to the left of my incision. My surgeon didn't seem to think any of this was unusual but I am tired of my bowels consuming my time if you know what I mean!
Thanks for any insight!
