Pain med side effect: You are probably on pain medicines and the bowel peristalsis is slower. If senna is not helping, there are other medications that have been good for this short of enema, although enema would help if obstipated. Ask your doctor for other meds like dulcolax, polyethylene glycol, lactulose. Only your md can make the best decision after evaluation. Good luck.
