thankyou flchurchlady xxxx well last night I got a little sore in bed, quite strange as it was 2 specific parts of the small bowel. My only guess is that my dinner was struggling with the adhesions. But got up at 8.30 had the longest poop in history without the use of help and it felt great. My kids are away at their grandparents so i thought oh well I can go back to bed, got back up at 11.00 and had another little poop. Yeeehaa. I am also ready to face another day of decorating!! Huge difference to before where i actually cried because I couldn't help do nothing, now i am actually doing this decor malarkey on my own. My hubby and best friend are worried that I will have a burnout, but somehow i actually have a good feeling about this. There seems to be a little light at the end of the tunnel now. last night after dinner, my best friend hubby and I ended up having a huge water fight. Water balloons and super soakers and everything. It felt great. No worries no pain, and i had a complete blast. I was able to paticipate in something and last till the very end. I know that i will inevitably have bad days, but for now they are good, and while they are like that i am going to do as much as i can, and make up for feeling like such an invalid these past years!!! hope everyone is well. the healingwell forum seems quite quiet these days. luv to all
Amanda, I'm so glad you're doing well! If you get trapped gas again, take some Gas-X, and it will help a lot.
Gas-X is an over-the-counter gas relief medicine that helps dissolve gas. They must have it in the UK under a different name. Simethicone is the medical name for it. Trapped gas can be so painful! Laying on your left side can sometimes help, too. Hope it goes away soon!
