Sorry if this is TMI but I think I am constipated. I've never had this before in my life, but I haven't been able to go to the loo since the surgery. It just occurred to me that it may be the pain meds I am on.
I am taking Co-codamol and it does say one of the side affects can be constipation.
What should I do now? I don't know if there is an easy way of getting things working again normal, like eating some more fruit/water or whether I should ring the nurse and check to see if I should switch painkillers or what.
