Re: constipation and c sections
Yup I had constipation from both the c-section and the opiate based pain meds that I took when I went home. A stoop softener helped. As soon as I stopped taking the Tylenol with codeine, I was regular again.
Opiates slow down digestion and makes stool move through the intensties too slowly. The body removes too much liquid from the stool, thus resulting in constipation. Fiber make help a little, but increased water intake will help much more.

Labels? I don't use labels. I can't even get my label maker to work.
