I used KY jelly on the head of the penis and Boudreaux's Butt Paste on my scrotum....because even then I had leakage!!!!
3 to 5 days for first BM is typical....use stool softeners or Milk of Magnesia, especially if you are taking hydrocodone (generic name of Vicodin). You do NOT want to become constipated....can lead to serious discomfort, even hospitalization, if not addressed early. Mine got so bad at one point that even two enemas in a 30 minute period hardly made a dent in the problem.....not a pleasant memory.
