Alright Here is the deal. As many of you may already know I had surgery about 6 weeks ago removing a foot of my ileum, appendix, a bit of cecum and my ileocecal valve. I am aware that it takes a while to start feeling better, but holy moses this is getting rediculous. After over 1.5 months I am still having these glorious symptoms:
-Nausea immediately after eating
-Stomach ache immediately after eating
-Extreme fatigue and exhaustion: I literally go to bed at about 9:00pm and I am still beat when I wake up...I pretty much could lay in bed all day and sleep off and on.
-do not have normal bm's...pretty much just diarriah
-just an overall feeling of gross and sickness...
-I am unable to take anything but baths because it takes so much of my energy
-I can't walk long distances, or even short distances for that matter because it about kills me
-joint pain and fatigue
-super dry skin/slight rash on my cheeks and a bit on my chin
-I basically just feel like crap...what can I do?
If anyone has had this surgery...is this all normal for a recovery period? Should I call my doc about this...I feel like I have lupus or something
