Hi, well as most of you know I had a total colectomy and have a J-Pouch inside...well everything has been going wonderful till last week. I got so tired of chicken and turkey, so one night, I had a sm. salad, just lettuce, and had another one the next day, then the day after that I had a larger but still small salad the next night.
Since then I have had so much trapped gas up high and not having my usual bms at all. I am so cramped up like a tight ball on the left side of my abdomen and the knotted up ball will not go away. I know that the air must be keeping my bowels from moving, I have gone a tiny bit but have not emptied since a week ago. What do I do? I know I will never have salad again but should I be worried or will it just work itself out???? My whole body is constantly shakeing and cannot relax, wondering if I have a obstruction ??? Or I need to know some how to get that gas to move out, I do not want to go to the ER cuz always afraid of what they might say. So to be perfectly honest, I am hopeing that it will pass and be like it was before. My doc is back in the office tomorrow so cant call him till then...
So kind of freaking out at the moment, because someone told me on here not to eat salad, oh boy did I. I dont know why I didn't listen, guess I was bored with the bland food....hope someone can help me.....please...God, everything was going so good..
