I knew it was going to be hard going to the bathroom after giving vaginal birth, but I had no idea I would still be constipated even after 3 weeks. I have taken laxatives 3 times and I hate that I need those in order to empty my waste. 

I also feel that my hands are still numb after I wake up from my sleep, which is very little these days. My numbed hands are what I had while I was pregnant towards the end of my third trimester. I wonder if that is a result of all the toxins built up in my body from not being able to release them?

Anyone else having the same issue?
