I had surgery the day after you, OP. My surgeon had me start mixing Miralax into my my morning fluids from day 1 post-op. I’ve had 2 somewhat loose but small BM’s already. He also had me start with 4 oz of Protein Shakes 3 times a day on day 1 too. That’s the only unclear liquids I am currently consuming. I would guess if you are on strict Clear Liquids you don’t have a need to poop yet.

Your body still should be producing “bile” But everyone system is different. I had 💩 all throughout the clear liquid diet, was it formed nope just the “bile”. Also I am 7 days post op and have had 💩 movement 6 of those 7. Like I said everyone is different

a week is common - three weeks is too long. It's good you're doing something about it...

Miralax in your coffee or Protein Drink daily. Stool softeners also due the trick.

although there's no way of knowing for sure, the severe cramps may be from the constipation rather than the tea. I get horrible cramps if I get too backed up...
