I haven't had to very often (maybe twice since surgery) but when I did, I followed my surgeon's instructions for stool softener (Dulcolax) + Milk of Magnesia and it worked like a charm.

Senna-S its a stool softener laxative has been the only thing that works other than a suppository for me. My doctor told me to do what I had to do and not be miserable.

I got sleeved the same day as you and I have the same issue I now have TMI haemroids (can't spell it) the pain down there is worse than my operation pain and issues I can't go so I use an microlax enema then I go but it's awful and takes forever then last night I took two ducolax before bed and today is not a good day I'd be scared to leave the house so I go from one extreme to another than back again it's frustrating I've never ever suffered constipation.< /p>

I take a dulcolax stool softener daily and once I have had to take a miralax laxative pill. I do not let it go more than every other day.

My doctor has my on Stoll softern twice day and if my day four I don't have nomoral BM he has me on lactulose 15 ml once in morn and by afternoon I have BM it's watery but I don't get diarea from it. I'll be on that for five months till my body reguals by self. This stops hemroids and straining on you new tummy. It cause swelling when you strain to go

The best way to treat hemorrhoids is to drink plenty of Water and take Fiber. You might want to check with your Dr before taking any Fiber since you just had surgery. Also, keep in mind NORCO, Hydrocodon and other pain medications can cause constipation.< /p>
