I suffer terrible constipation since coming home from a myomectomy operation, what can I do?
Constipation is a frequent problem after pelvic surgery such as myomectomy or hysterectomy. About 3 days after your operation, the hospital usually ensures that you can open your bowel and may assist by showing you the correct way of emptying your bowel without straining to pass stools and supply some suppositories. Continued constipation problem at home could be helped by: Cut down on the amount of pain killers containing codeine or morphine because one of the side-effect of these products is constipation; Drink plenty of orange juice and eat high fibre food; Speak to your pharmacists to obtain some mild laxatives (lactulose or senokot) or suppositories (glycerine or Dulcolax). Failing all of that, see your GP.
- It’s very uncomfortable coming home at night to a dark house, are there products available that automatically turn on lights so it looks like someone is at home and not seem dark?
- I was really pleased with the CD I made at home, but when I took it round to my mates to play it to him, it sounded terrible on his Hi-Fi. What did I do wrong?
- Who will explain to us the operation and functions of our new home?
