Thanks folks. Things are better this morning. He started passing gas last night and then stool again at about 4 AM.
He was getting a little crampy yesterday but I suspect it was just because everything is still new (just had the retention sutures out yesterday and still has a catheter) and sore.
I suspect it was just that he'd had a lot of diarrhea (maybe from the acidophilus) and had cleaned out with nothing left for awhile. Then the brain takes over and starts worrying, thus creating symptoms, especially when he went through what he did with the last obstruction.
It was truly horrendous-- horrible pain that was not controllable, that horrid NG tube (first time) in for 7 days, fighting with the hierachy of the medical system (me, not him-- I had to do the advocacy big time) and a 3 hour surgery only 12 weeks after the initial 5 hour one. Plus all the drugs and nonsense that one has to put up with.
So, it was the last thing we wanted.
He was starving (which is a good thing) so had some rice crackers at 5 and now just had a plain, small bowl of quinoa, which seems to be going down well.
Thanks for the advice. Maybe in a few years, if all goes well, we'll be able to not look at twinges and anomalies with the same dread.
