That's someone who's never had a baby right there.
Another one I thought of:
I think that having difficulty having a bowel movement after a c-section is pretty closely related to the morphine you get in the epidural and in the IV drip afterward. Opiates and opioids notoriously cause constipation. So it's a good idea to take stool softeners after most any surgery, but especially one where you have a morphine drip for hours afterward.
I don't have problems peeing even after having a catheter. But I think that's a side effect of having had many UTI's, after which I can pretty acutely feel my urethra at any time. When my son was born, I had a foley catheter from midnight on Wednesday until about 2 pm on Thursday, so about 38 hours. I had no trouble eliminating after that.

One thing I experienced with my second section was that the gas pain was excruciating.
