I haven't been regular since I had my surgery. I went over a week at a time with no BMs. I had horrible constipation to the point where I was almost in the hospital. It was so painful. I am still not regular. I have to take a laxative every weekend or I just won't go. Can't take them during the week because the results are too unpredictable for me to be at work or in traffic. I am hoping this will eventually work itself out. I certainly can't go the rest of my life being constipated like this.
Oh! I almost forgot to write this! My husband and I did some googling on what causes constipation. "High protein yogurt, specifically Greek yogurt" it said was notorious for causing constipation. I have felt better since I cut it out of my diet. Before I cut out the yogurt, I was about to go to the hospital because I was so desperate and in pain.
I am actually going through a bit of the same situation. I am on Post-Op Day 5 and still no BM. I am going to take everyone's comments to heart and go buy me some MOM. Hopefully it will help. I haven't eaten anything solid just yet, so I was wondering if had eaten (drank) chicken soup broth, I would go for the higher fat content (higher than water). But no luck yet. I'll keep you posted.
