Have you seen a gastroenterologist? I work for gastro, and i notice people that have had abdominal surgeries usually suffer from constipation, because they get adhesions. Adhesions are basically after your surgery, they develop scar tissue as they heal, but it makes everything in the abdominal area kind of stick together, so then you are pushing to have a bowel movement but nothing comes out. I think another surgery to correct that would be lysis of adhesions, to cut the "stickyness" so then you can freely go to the bathroom again. Probably what would clean you out would be like a colonoscopy prep. Do a low residue breakfast, stay on clears, then in the afternoon take 2 dulcolax tablets, then 2 hours later, for a prep, they would drink 64 ounces of gatorade with one of those little small bottles of miralax. You could maybe take 2 dulcolax tabs, then 2 hours later, drink some miralax with maybe say 32 ounces of gatorade, that would definitely clean you out. About an hour after you do that, you would go to the bathroom and be cleaned out. Or, instead of drinking all that, you could do an enema, that would get you going. Once you are cleaned out, the next day resume your normal diet and slowly work your way up (over a 2 week period) of taking up to around 20 grams of fiber a day. But ask your doctor about this, because some people can't have fiber like that, or they can only do soluble fiber and not insoluble fiber, like people with inflammatory bowel (crohn's and UC). I notice a lot of women after having had cesarean sections have constipation all the time. Also, get your thyroid checked (if you have hypothyroidism that can cause constipation). When my daughter was little, around 4 years old, she would suffer from constipation. And it was always after she ate those annisette pizzelle cookies. I had to give her an enema, nothing happened, then i had to administer another enema, and she finally pooped, and it was like the size of a round baseball. I felt so bad! We were in the hospital for 2 days with that one. So i no longer let her eat those cookies. Also, she does better since i switched to organic gummy vitamins instead of the regular flintstone vitamins, i think she just couldn't digest them properly. She does best by avoiding wheat and not much sugars. She goes once a day now. I try to cook healthy and avoid processed foods, and no high fructose corn sugar. And i don't give her anything with anise in it, that definitely makes her constipated. I only use extra virgin olive oil and butter and i avoid soy, vegetable oil, and margarine. That really helps. Especially watching sugars really helps, too. But in your case, i would say first you need to get cleaned out, so try doing an enema. Once you are cleaned out, do a healthy organic diet. I can't eat wheat, it gives me bad stomach pains and bloating. I do best by staying on a low-carb, high protein diet. I am the opposite, i go to the bathroom too much every day. I get flares where sometimes i can go to the bathroom up to 10 times a day. They actually thought i had celiac disease. I had an EGD and my small bowel looked like a celiac patient, but i don't carry the genes that celiac people have. So i got no advice, but i do do better avoiding gluten as much as possible. Right now i am waiting for my test results from my stool culture to come back, they think i have a digestion problem with my pancreas, where it is hyperactive and producing too many digestive enzymes. That's probably why food goes right through me sometimes. Whoever thought our bowels would be ruling our lives like this? lol... but seriously you should call your doctor and ask his/her advice on what to do to make you feel better!
