So it is three weeks since my reversal - and  i have had tummy ache for a week or so - it dissipates a bit in the evening and at night - but all day it is a horrible dull ache all over the tummy area and i find it hard to concentrate.
 
I guess i am still constipated - i go from one extreme to the other- oh i wish i knew what to do shakehead and am miserable - i was feeling much better with the bag. sad

Hi Hodaya
 
Yeah i am having bms about 11 times a day and once or twice at night (it is sometimes not easy 'going' if the consistency is like little blobs or a little bit)
 
Getting various consistancies e.g. small blobs to semi solid to  watery and sometimes i may go a lot in one sitting. no nausea.
 
I am feeling bloated also. The pear juice didnt touch me, but the prune juice does.
 
I wish i could just feel better. x

i wonder how is it that the pear juice actually cleans me out and doesn't touch others..... so weird, i wish it would help you like it does me. i'm glad you're not nauseous and having output, sounds like it's not an obstruction. i don't know what this pain is, but if it makes you that miserable, then i think you should fef give you dr a call, or even make an appt. hope you feel better. ♥♥♥

Yeah it is strange - but good - as pear juice nicer than prune. Today it is early and i am gonna try a new thing - i ate a very small breakfast and drank the prune juice slowly. so far no tummy ache.

Thanks Hoday - i got my appt with the hospital on 29 Oct at 9.40am - goodness knows what that will be like with going to the loo at least four times before lunchtime ....
