the first days after the operation i was in
pain, but it took tramadol, pain reliever 2 times a day. i took a lot of medicines after
surgery, including soft laxatives. i was very affraid of the 1 BM, which happened 2 days after surgery, but it was easy and pain free. i was recomended to take tramadol before i had the BM so i would feel a little pain. Today i can walk better, even sit for a while, but i have mild abdominal pain before and after BM.
