Question
i just had a vaginal hysterectomy 2 weeks ago and I am having issues with having a bowel movement. At first, my bowel movements were very loose. But a week after I got out of the hospital, I started having issues with my bowels. I simply cannot make a decent bowel movement even when I have an urgency to go. What could possibly be wrong?

Brief Answer: Please see the details Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM). 1.Take high fiber diet (may be psyllium fibers) and lots of liquid in your diet 2.Take triphala powder one teaspoon with warm water or for better result mix it with honey and take it at time of sleep at night and one teaspoon in early morning empty stomach 3.Avoid foods that contain maida. 4. Take meals at least 2 hours before going to bed. 5. Take lots of fruits and vegetables daily 6. Add condiments like jeera, haldi and ajwain in your diet as these all help in digestion 7. take laxative like syrup cremaffin plus which is a combination of sodium picosulphate, milk of magnesia, and liquid paraffin 8. Bowel isssue in you may also be due to calcium you are taking if possible please avoid it I hope I have answered your query and this will help you.
