for example i went to the bathroom "BM" like slushy mud so far 4 times between 1130am and 0130pm. and yesterday, evry time i would get on the pot i would "go" again a good amount. so i guess it's a "constantly going all day thing."
i had a problem where i would get blockages and not have a BM for 10 to 12 days...so GI put me on MiraLax, so of course it comes out now.
i'm just feeling heavier, and it feels like a "PMS" heavy you know? like water weight. so my concern is if maybe the morphine is causing the water retention. i know it is a salt compound.
and yes, my ankles i have noticed do swell a tiny bit if i am on them for a while..which is unusual. as do my hands also.
or maybe it's just nothing...it's just weird that all of a sudden i've been gaining. without change of diet, and i know it's NOT MUSCLE! LOL.
i will talk to my doc about it, it does concern me. my breathing has been a little dificult, especially on exertion (but then again that's not new either). and the belly swelling is concerning (but no pain yesterday or today in the gut).
thanks for your insight.
i guess everything is bothering me! LOL.
