Like Angela I am also 3 weeks out and went in my bag 1997 do to perianal abces.
I was going alot 10-12 times in the Hospt and had a diaper on somedays and at night b/c I couldn't make it out of bed in time with the NG tube and IV hooked up.
I had a set back so they had to put the NG tube in to clear me again you should not have one and only a IV.
Once the NG and IV was out I was able to move more freely and make the trip to the bathroom, it was painful for me as my large intestine and anal area had not been used in 11 years and I had some stricture down there...its better now with respect to passing a more formed stool.
Today has been a bad day for me and a lot of loose/watery stools almost like I have the flu...one concern I have is I have been feeling sick and queasy since I been home 2 weeks now and I don't know why so I will be asking my doc on Wed.
I have been eating ok and been trying most things I think the oat meal helps keep me more solid, I take fiber pills and antacid to cut down on the acidity in the stools also have wet wipes with aloe and hemorrhoid cream all to help with the butt pain...note don't use toilet paper much or at all use the wet wipes, I discard them in a grocery bag that is in the bathroom garbage container as I am on a septic tank.
I have days where I think I should not have done this and worry some about
my future but the people on here and my year of research all tell me it will get better.
I am going to ask my doc if I can get on Qestrion (sp) to slow my system down as I don't see me making it around my job with out something.
My mom has CD and uses it every morning with juice, my brother and sister both have colitis...oh yea my fathers sister had CD she passed away last year of natural cause,
So my DNA is shot from both side of my family.
I think I will post up about
the nauseating issues I been having and see if others have symilar issues.
Sorry bout the long babble but I'm laying in bed today board and feeling sick.
