Hi. Uhm. I'm 17. Kay, so I developed this huge, painful out-of-the-blue hemorrhoid on Sunday, and then Monday I went to school in excruciating pain, because I wasn't yet aware that it was, in fact, a hemorrhoid. I ended up going to my doctor and she told me what it was and that since is was so large & painful, I should see a surgeon. I saw a surgeon (he was very nice) and said that he wouldn't remove the hemorrhoid, but he removed the blood clot and then stitched it up. With the pain killers & sitz baths, the pain has been under control and I feel much better than I did Mon. without doubt. HOWEVER--my problem is that I haven't had bowel movement since the movement that initiated the pain on Sunday. I'm scared that something terrible is going to happen to my body if I don't pass stool soon, but so far my body hasn't even given me the signal that I need to go.

I've been drinking water with that fiber stuff, I've been eating lots of fruits, and I drank more prune juice than I would have ever liked to. Why can't I go?? :$ :-(

After surgery, you will probably have your first bowel movement within 3-4 days. If you haven't by the 4th day, you should try a laxative (such as Fleet enema) to force the stool out.

Hope this helps. Ask your doctor what other options there are.

Simply, because it is still too early for your body to pass stool. You are doing everything right and give yourself time without panick. :)

It take me 5 days to go after surgery. And now I go every hour  little bit , almost for 3 days...wonder when it will stop. I am honestly glad I have the first 4 days with out pain.   :-).

Give your body 4 days before your first bowel movement after surgery, which is also when the pain should start subsiding. It's normal to face this situation, so keep up the effort.
