my goodness. From about
noontime today, I've had the most gas ever. The bag keeps filling up and I keep emptying it. I'm too new to put one on without the nurse--she will come tomorrow and I have a sample with a filter.
Any ideas what's going on? I'm using the gas x which is a good help. I can't really find anything in my diet that was particularly gassy. At least it's coming out. But I'm so afraid the bag will burst. Going to set my alarm to wake up and empty it --well, I've been getting up anyway.
In other news, saw the surgeon today. Gave me some low dose percaset---thank goodness!! The pain was getting unbearable. Took out the abdominal sutres and some of the rectal but now I have to have a Visiting Nurse everyday for a while to pack the rectum wound.
Any ideas on the left side pain, tenderness? It's not gas and surgeon was a little stumped too.
Thanks for all the help and support. So far, tonight is a better night.
