Well, yesterday was a real treat. I was at work and about
10 A.M I all of a sudden had pain in my lower right abdomen. It was almost the same pain that I get when I'm having a blockage. The pain wasn't going away so I called my nurse at about
Noon and told her what was going on. She said that she would talk with the doctor and get back to me. She called me back around 1 P.M and told me she was going to order an x-ray and bloodwork. I still had the pain but it had not gotten any worse and by about
4 P.M it had subsided some. At 5 P.M I had my x-ray but they could not find the orders for blood work so I didn't get it done. I got home and I was feeling better and now this morning I am fine no pain at all. I even had dinner
last night. I don't know what it was, I hope it was not a blockage. She is going to call me this morning with the results and I will let you know. I was very nervous and worried.
As to the immodium, I was doing well about
a month after surgery, formed BM and back to my normal once a day. Recently these past few weeks, I have been having "D" and gas, sometimes going 2-4 times per day. I don't know what happened as I eat pretty much the same foods
I never had any cramping or nausea after surgery. Are you eating
normal foods yet? Maybe pushed them to soon. My doctor would tell me to go back on on a low residue diet for a week and then slowly start introducing regular food back into my diet. I really feel bad for especially after what you have just gone through, don't let it get you down. There are going to be good days and bad days for probably a year for both you and me and we need to keep a positive attitude and get through this.
I hope you feel better soon!
P.S Do they have you on any maint. meds yet? Did I ever ask you about Methotrexate, my doctor wants me to go on that over Imuran. Your thoughts when you feel up to it.
