Is it normal to have worsening pain with BMs after the surgery? I had surgery on Friday, and my first few BMs were painful, but okay. Yesterday and today, each one is excruciating. Afterward I am left in intense pain, shaking and sweating in the bath for half an hour before I can move again. It seems to hurt worse each time. I’m taking colace and Miralax and they are soft, not sure why the pain is so extreme afterward.
