Check out the latest post from Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Center: Joint Replacement Surgery [7 Easy Answers To Uncomfortable Questions]

1. What can I do about constipation after my surgery?

It is common to have constipation after surgery, particularly when you take narcotic pain medicine. A regular over-the-counter stool softener is the best solution to this problem. Make sure you eat lots of fruits and vegetables, it will also help. In sporadic situations, you may need a suppository or enema.


2. Can I drink alcohol?

Alcohol consumption is not recommended until you have stopped your narcotic pain medicine and your mobility is back. If you suffer from alcohol or drug dependence, consult with your surgeon at our Outpatient Surgery Center, NC.


3. I feel depressed. Is this natural?

It is normal to be in an emotional state, feel anxiety or have trouble sleeping after your surgery. The reasons are many, but the most important factors are:

  • difficulty getting around;
  • discomfort;
  • increased dependency on others.

These emotions will naturally fade as you commence to go back to your systematic activities. If they persist, consult your primary care physician.
