Agree, waiting for at least a few days to pass the coin is recommended. Give some banana to the kid as well. Warm regards

Hello there. I can understand your concern.  You have to be careful. What were you doing? You just need to wait and wait for it to come out naturally. Till then you have to keep  check on the stools. Go for regular follow ups with the surgeon. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
