Hydrate/stool soften: Make sure you stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of fluid — about 2L per day, especially while recovering from surgery. If you are taking narcotic pain medication, you should also take a stool softener which may help, such as colace (docusate sodium). And most of all, don't worry, the poop will come out soon. If the problem gets worse, call your surgeon. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Constipation...: If you're young and otherwise healthy, it sounds like you're constipated — which can bring on hemorrhoids and bleeding. If, after increasing your fruits and veggies, water intake, and fiber, you're still constipated, make sure you see your doctor to get a check.

Abdominal cramps: Can have many causes. Included are constipation, lactose intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, an acute infectious gastroenteritis (stomach flu), something you ate that did not agree with you, as they say. Green stools means that there is bile that was not reabsorbed. Often that happens if you have diarrhea or ate too much fat. If not better, see your doctor. ...Read more

My 2 month baby is not pooping since 2 days.she is on breastfeed and has soft stools.the prob is she gets crqnky due to gas.this is for 3rd time.help?

Normal...: As newborns, breastfed babies tend to stool ALL THE TIME. Thankfully, this slows down and it is normal. As long as the stools are soft, it is not a concern and actually quite normal and expected that the frequency may decrease to every 2-4 days. Crankiness is often blamed on gas in 2 mo olds (may not be the cause) — but you can try burping, rubbing her tummy, or gas drops for relief. ...Read more

Chronic constipation: Think about your colon! It moves that heavy load of old stool. Help it with a bowel regimen, to get 2 soft bowel movements daily. Hydrate with water, tea, juice up to 1.5 l daily, fiber tablets, probiotics, laxatives (milk of magnesium or miralax), stool softeners, and walking make up best bowel regimens. If you have fever or vomiting, get evaluated with your doc. Colonoscopy age 50. ...Read more

Milk can cause excessive flatus in people with lactase deficiency. If all else fails, you can buy underpants with activated charcoal liner to absorb the malodor. ...Read more
