Hello there, my name is Michael. I had my hernia

Hello there, my name is Michael. I had my hernia surgery today and have been home just on bedrest since. I suppose the cathter they gave me earlier when i was under has affected my normal urination. Which now thankfully is improving. My real issue is this, i now have not had a bowel movement in about 24 hrs. I did take a laxative a few hours ago and most likely will deliver sometime tomrw morn. My doctor also prescribed me some pain medication which i have not taken yet and im hurting now a bit to where im definitely uncomfortable and sleeping this eve will be difficult. If i take one of the pain meds will that really mess me up worse for going to the bathroom later.?
Thank you and sorry for the long message

Hello, my name is Nichole and I was hoping to get information on what I should do. You see, back in 2011 I had surgery due to an umbilical hernia after having my first baby (emergency C-section 2010). The doctor put a mesh in BUT every day over the years my stomach still looks as if I m pregnant. It s hard and won t go down. I was wondering after a mesh is put in, is it still possible that the hernia came back? I go through pain everyday. I feel a bit uncomfortable going into see the same doctor who did it because the whole atmosphere of the place is a little unsettling. What should I do?
