Just wanted to let you know that I have had 2 bowel resections, 2 incisional site hernias & an abdominal wall reconstruction.
My incisional site hernia was located at my belly button. The surgeon repaired it. Two months later I complained of the same localized pain in that area. My surgeon told me I just need to heal longer. I saw my surgeon for a 2nd & 3rd time, my GI, PCP & finally my GI again all in the length of back & forth for a full year only to find out what I had been saying all along and that was that I knew my hernia had come back. It just took someone to order a CT for me to find it! UGH
I just want you to be aware of a incisional site hernia's symptoms. Look it up on line. Maybe you have that going on?
Also after my surgery I had complained about the VERY bad diarehea just like you & my GI told me about taking Immodium as well. He said that we could take up to 8 a day without it being a problem. I can only take up to 4 a day before it starts teetering between bouts of D & constipation for me. Can't stand dealing with constipation!!! But it did help with all the gurgling sounds. Maybe it will give you some relief though.
