Quoting March 2013:" I had to have stiches with my second and even tho going to the bathroom was worrysome it was necessary ... [snip!] ... fine if I wanted to go back to work. So if I can work while having stiches I think going to the bathroom should be okay too.."Yeah I dread it everytime, but your right it is necessary I cried the first time I went right after I had him cause it hurt so bad, but yeah I'd say they are pretty strong.
Quoting **2Lynns8707*ES*:" just relax the muscles you normally use to push the poo out... as much as you can relax, with my 1st ... [snip!] ... when i'd go it was like a large pebble's worth.. lol TMI i know, but the doctor says that counts as my BM they needed me to do."Yeah my biggest problem is though where I am afraid of it hurting mymuscles tense up and it makes it hurt even worse, and then where I am so sore it's hard for me to wipe and get clean, I'm just praying I heal up quick and I won't have to worry about it lol & ouch bet that sucked!
Quoting Red Bottom:" Your stitches will be fine, but it WILL hurt a LOT to poop. There's no getting around that, but you need to do it. Absolutely take the stool softeners. I didn't and regretted it every day, lol."You got that right it hurts very badly, but yeah definately no way getting around it. I've been taking two stool softeners every night before bed so it's not too bad.
Quoting Tiffany Gillette:" I am not going to be of any help, I actually didn't find going to the bathroom painful one bit. My terror was peeing. My God was that the worst stinging sensation I've ever felt..."It hurts when I pee sometimes but not too bad just stings a little taking a crap is my biggest problem :/
