C-sections

11mo post cs question...

Ok we are all adults so I will just come out with it!

Ever since I had my cs 11 months ago...when I have to poop I have to go NOW. Is this a muscle thing or just a body change? Indifferent

LOL thanks!

  • Did you have any complications with your surgery? Unless you had a complication, I would assume it is related to pregnancy in general, not the c/s.

  • I somtimes have that problem but I alwso had my gallbladder taken out after DD1 4 years ago. That is what has caused some of my "gotta go right now"issues.




     

  • I experienced this for a short time after my vbac but not after my c-section. Work your pelvic floor muscles- squats should help. Pregnancy can stress the pelvic floor, even without a vaginal birth.

  • Personally, I didn't have that problem. I know that's not really all that helpful. Maybe ask your doc. I would call them anonymously if you're too embarrassed to ask in person. If they try that "we cant give out personal info" thing, then just ask in a general sense. "Is this a normal side effect of having a CS?"

  • I would definitely talk to your doctor, and try to get a recommendation for a physical therapist - there some who work specifically with postpartum women and plevic floor issues. I would think it's more a pregnancy thing rather than a c/s thing.

  • Me too but I think it is more pregnancy related than c/s related, like the PP said.  I don't know if there is a similar exercise to Kegels that will help this but I'd like to know b/c it can be embarassing if I'm out!
