So I had my first surgery about two months ago and for the most part I've been doing great, aside from some skin irritation. These past couple of weeks I suddenly have a gnawing, burning feeling in my stomach. Sometimes it happens in between meals, but mostly it keeps me up at night. I've also started to have very watery output all day and all night, and by morning it's totally green (which I'm guessing is bile). I don't understand why food is suddenly moving through me so fast, and I'm scared I'm also dehydrated now so I'm trying to drink a lot. The past 3 days I've also been very, very tired. Yesterday I felt nearly as fatigued as I used to when my hemoglobin was around 5, but I'm not losing any blood right now so it can't be anemia.
I'm seeing my surgeon on Monday (the 25th) and we're supposed to be scheduling my next surgery. I'm afraid that whatever's going on is going to be a huge setback and I'm going to have to wait a really long time.
