Not able to pass stool.
I had the DS on 11/14/11 and was on a liquid diet a few days before that. Well, I have still yet to have a bowel movement in 14 days. When I went for my one week check-up, they said I should soon. Well, I am still waiting. I have been taking Miralax and Colace every day. Neither seem to help at all. I am still able to pass some gas but that is it.
Sorry, I know this isn't the best topic to talk about but I am getting nervous. If I haven't gone by Monday I am thinking of going back into my surgeon on Monday to see what is going on because I think by than 17 days of not going is way too long.
I'd call the doc on Monday. This is not unheard of but should be evaluated. It's possible you just plain haven't processed enough stuff to be worthy of a poop yet. But better safe than sorry. Do you have any other distressing symptoms involved with trying to poop and not being able to? How about belly pain, distension, burping foul smelling/tasting stuff? Those would be things that would have me saying DO NOT WAIT GO NOW.
