Hi, i recently had surgery - pain meds caused constipation. For relief, I used dulcolax overnight relief. 15 hours later still cramping and very nauseated and orange diarrhea - do I need to be concerned?

In brief: Yes

If you having pain, nausea and diarrhea may be concerning.
Did you have fever too? If yes and persists, please call your surgeon.
