The Importance of Keeping Constipation at Bay After Surgery
If you have had any sort of surgery or medical
procedure you know that afterwards your body is very sensitive
to movement and you likely have a list of doctors orders of
how to best take care of your body post procedure. What you
may not realize is that something that you don't think about,
constipation, could be causing you strain that is against your
Being post surgery is often a tough time for people.
First, if you are used to being active, you are suddenly being
told that you are supposed to be sedentary. Now add to this
that one of the side effects of being too sedentary can be constipation
and you're going to have a problem.
While you may think constipation is not a big
deal, you need to understand the negative effects this can have
on your surgery site.
Generally having a surgery site means you are
going to have stitches and tissue that needs to be left as still
as possible so it can heal most effectively. Now think about
how your body reacts when you are constipated and trying to
get the waste out of your body. There is often a lot of pushing
and strain involved. If your surgery site is anywhere near where
that pushing and straining is, (chest, abdomen, etc) you are
going to be pushing and pulling on the skin and muscles around
the site of your surgery.
This can have major adverse effects on your body.
At the least it will cause you twinges of pain as the surgery
site is disturbed. It is also possible this will do damage to
the site. After all, when you feel pain it is because your body
is letting you know there is something bad happening in the
area. If you are pushing and straining a lot you can stretch
and strain the surgery site or even worse, rip it open. This
could happen either internally or externally, so you may not
even know it is happening.
So, with this threat looming, what do you do to
prevent this from happening? Stop the constipation from happening.
An easy way to do this is with a thorough colon cleaning. A
colon cleanse that is thorough is usually taken orally. That
means it works from your stomach on through the entire digestive
tract. This is the most effective form of colon cleansing.
Next, you need to consider what type of complete colon cleansing you want to have. The smartest would be an oxygen based colon cleanse. The way an oxygen based colon cleanse works is that as it breaks down the waste that is backed up in your system it also releases oxygen. Oxygen is a great healing agent (it gives life!) for your body so it will not only help clear out the waste that needs to be removed, but also give your body an extra hand in healing itself, which is going to be vital as you are recovering from surgery.
