I had a total colectomy 18 months ago for colon inertia. I have still had issues with constipation, but taking miralax 2x a day helps alot. I've been able to eat most things without any abdomen distress...but 2 nights ago I ate a hot dog...first time since surgery. Yesterday I woke up with my belly aching and so bloated. I've gone to the bathroom several times, (small amts) but it's very yellow and liquidy (liquidy from miralax)..but yellow? Last night I only ate soup for dinner, and this morning I'm still bloated and have some pains. I'm scared to eat today....tried gas x, but didn't help. does this sound like partial obstruction and dare I eat today??
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
P.S. I've been on antibiotics (clindamycin) all week for a spider bite. I've been taking probiotics with it, but have stopped taking it since I just had one pill left. It can cause nausea, diarrhea, etc but I don't have that. Just abdomen pain...could that be the cause I wonder?
