I feel how you feel and it has only been recently....I did not know what was going on and still do not. I would definately ask your surgeon. I am not sure when I see mine again, but since D/C I had not been sick after meals until this past saturday and I have thrown up six meals. My stomach gets all bloated and full and then I feel nauseated. I have pain directly behind my inscision. I was thinking it was adhesions as well.....So I think my dear, that you should definately call before your appt and see what your doc thinks.
I need your opinion....
I am possibly having a reversal and reconnection if anastamosis. I am worried the 2 '' of colon I have left and adhesions will cause me issues in the future. I think it would be better to just open me back up (i think they try and go through stoma holw if possible) and clean up scar tissue and remove whats rest of colon. This was the only section I could not get barium out of either on the defecography. My whole rectum emptied, just a little left in remaining colon is what it said. ????? Do you think this is risking too much or am I risking too much by not doing it and potentially having an obstruction (Cleveland said I am at great risk) in the future and ending with another ileostomy??
Hope you feel better sweetie....wish i could make it better.
