Thanks for all your responses. ddd45.. I'm trying to move around, stretch etc and do all the things you suggest.
I have more output and I've been trying to eat a bit to see what happens, but it seems like it's working REALLY hard to get through. My stomach sounds like a gurgling washing machine.
I have literally lost 3 lbs in 4 days.. and feel weak and wiped out.
Rosemary, my surgeon isn't an 'adhesion specialist'. is there such a thing? but he's one of the best lapro guys in our area. I know he won't want to operate unless I'm on my deathbed.. but the alternative (staying like this for much longer) isn't appealing either.
You're right Windy.. things have been changing for a while now and I've been working with a dietician to try and figure out my food. Some days I wake up but don't eat until lunchtime as feel quite bloated and full. I've been eliminating more and more things as things get 'obstructed' and I dont' feel good the next day. Even crisps (potato chips) cause a problem.
I feel a little brighter this morning, so I'm hoping things will free up and I'll start to improve. Thanks again.. you guys are the best
