I had a lumbar laminectomy its been 3days and I haven't pooped yet is that normal

There shouldn't be any correlation between the laminectomy and the ability to pass stool.  You may be constipated from the inactivity of staying in the hospital.  Many people have problems with constipation after a hospital stay.  You will be fine if you are able to get up and move around.  Also drinking lots of fluids will help as well.  If you need an extra boost, prune juice will naturally get things moving for you.

How are you doing? Have you had any luck with relieving the constipation? Adding fiber to your diet will be helpful in getting your bowels to move. If you are still having difficulties, you can get a stool softener called colace over-the-counter at Walmart to help with your situation.
