I had laparoscopy done a week and a half ago in which my doctor found endometriosis and two cysts on my ovaries. After the procedure I was given hydrocodone to take for the pain. I was unaware it caused constipation. I've always struggled with constipation but didn't do anything to prevent it because I was unaware of this side effect. I took three doses of the medication and developed severe constipation with an anal fissure and hemeroids. I started taking Miralax and Colace stool softener as well as magnesium citrate. After 3 days of this I developed bad diarrhea. I have since stopped taking those. My anal fissure and hemeroids are almost unbearable. Today I stared having slightly more formed green stools with gas and cramps. What can I do too help my situation and the horrible stabbing pains I get every time I have to go? I am always worried about what I should be eating too.
