It wasn't as painful as I thought it would be. I was assuming it would be horrid, since it's putting a strain on certain muscles, and you have to sit, but I think the pain killers really helped out.

The Pain meds were a blessing, but I was constipated for 5 days, so ate way too many fruit/veggies/etc. and they all worked at once, so what I was left with was explosive diarrhea.

Getting myself down onto the toilet and picking myself back up hurt more than anything. The actual bowel movement didn't hurt at all.

After this op where they left it open it didn't hurt tho I am tentative. After my first where they stitched it, I would agree with Megan, it was getting onto the loo that was iffy.

I became constipated after surgery, this was my first and my painkillers had that side affect. i had to take miralax every day for about 4 days before i had my first bowel movement 5 days after surgery. it wasnt too bad, i waited until the last minute so that there was no straining involved. overall it hurt a little, bending down to the toilet but went very smoothly.

I still had so much drugs in my system and I wasn't even experiencing pain in general the day of surgery. I had a lot of discomfort though, because of my constipation. I was also scared to poop with my huge bandage on my butt. It literally stopped right above my butt hole.

I had my first the day after my cleft lift. It didn't hurt at all, though the sitting part was a little painful and I had to be very careful not to spread too much.
