I am 2 1/2 weeks post surgery. Just had the staples removed today. I've been experiencing excrutiating crampy spasms, sometimes before having D, and sometimes just randomly. They truly stop me in my tracks. I've tried bentyl and didn't find any relief. Does anyway who has had a resection and gallbladder removal (I had both together), or has any experience with this kind of pain have any suggestions on how to get some relief. I am open to both a med or something homeopathic.
I thought of trying a heating pad. I had asked a doctor about it at the hospital and he advised against it. I'm wondering, now that the staples are removed, maybe I could try applying heat. Forgot to ask my surgeon.
Also, although I've had the big D for many years, I am just now finding that the D is literally giving me a pain in the butt. I'm really sore. Suggestions for relief would be greatly appreciated.
Hope everyone's having a peaceful day.
