I am having much trouble regulating my BM's 18 days post-op. If I take the Stool Softener that was prescribed (Surfak), it causes me to have explosive diarrhea that can last for 3 hours and wipes me out. After 3 days of this, I called my urologist and he prescribed Lomotil. I only took one dose of this and then no Surfak the next morning. That caused me to have no BM's for two days and that HURT. I tried Colace this morning and had what I thought was a good BM but wound up being bloated and hurting the rest of the day.
Any advice that could be offered on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
