Living Without An Appendix

WARNING-DO NOT READ IF EASILY GROSSED OUT!!!

I cannot poop, I want to poop, and I am going to freak out if I don't poop soon. Haven't pooped since Sunday, and I know that I have not eaten a TON since then, but FOR THE LOVE, we have had Outback Takeout, Pizza Hut, and plenty of other stuff that I have ingested to help me poop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So uncomfortable!

If you want to use a politically correct term in place of poop, go for it, but I have a two and four year old-IT IS POOP!

That is super-tough! No fun whatsoever!!! Dulcolax is your friend, take lots of it with lots of water.

Will it help if I tell you that you'll get to watch a movie if you poop in the potty? ;o)

You succeeded in making me smile, I am taking some stuff the doctor gave me, and I ate the most disgusting McDonald's hamburger today hoping that it would make me poop!

Do you know if it is because of the surgery/anesthesia? Or just your body getting used to not having an appendix? Because if it's from the surgery, I can tell you after my c-section the hosptial kept giving me stool softeners every 4-6 hours and I was finally able to go 3 days after the surgery. I know they say the anestesia and surgery can do that to your system ... I hope you feel better soon!!

I am pretty sure it is from the surgery, I just like the title, LOL!! I have successfully pooped now, but I feel like I have a lot more in me!

Actually I prefer poopie :) At least now you have an excuse to say your going poopie and spend an hour in the bathroom away from all the chaos!

I too am excited that you went poopie in the pottie!! Glad to know that you're doing well and that that you're main complaint is constipation. A burst appendix in no bueno!

You're in my prayers....
