Sorry you are feeling bad! How many times per day are you going? Are you experiencing any trapped gas that you can't get out? Any nausea/bloating/burpiness/vomiting? Any rectal spasms? Does it feel like a door you can't push open? You can still get something out, but does it take a lot of time, pressure, working the stool out? Sorry, full of questions, but I have been having a hard time!
As for me, I have been getting sick, nausea, and bloated as the day progresses. The only reason I think I haven't vomited is I try really hard what I eat, trying to stick to a low-residue diet. As for me, I have had a couple mornings, where I had success on getting something out, after working out if for awhile. However, most the time, I have been doing enemas now every morning. I hate them, and I haven't tried mom of yet, so I might try that this week. However, for me, I know I am having problems. I asked about the nausea and trapped gas b/c, if I am lucky, go in the morning (usually with assistance all the time now, or the enema is still working off and on in the morning), I get sick as the more food and liquid I put in my system as the day progresses. Something is preventing me from having all these bowel movements I could be having throughout the day. One wrong food, especially too many carbs, I start burping like crazy until I can get the gas out downwards.
Yesterday afternoon, I felt horrible; I was soooo bloated, and I just wanted to sit there. I know I should walk, but that doesn't help me b/c I will burp insteads. I really have to lie on the couch until it passes. Yesterday about 2pm, I had a snack, then I just felt awful! I took a nap, and it wasn't till about 4 or 4:30 till I started passing some gas. It was like off and on; I have been getting the worse gas pains ever. Also, I am getting these spasms down at my bottom. Currently, the surgeon and nurse think in the office that I am having anal problems; I have never had the anal manometry test, scheduled for July 18th. But they don't think it is right, that I keep on getting sick, and half the time need assistance to go to the bathroom, feeling bloated and nausea. It is very frustrating! It is like I don't have a free-flowing constant air coming out of my bottom, and I am just sooo ready to live a normal life. I knew it would take some time to recooperate, but I didn't think I would be having this many problems sooo soon!
Let us know how you are doing, and hope things are getting a little better! (((Hugs!)))
