What a crummy way to spend you birthday!
Trapped gas pain is the worst. My stoma didn't work for 10 days after surgery, and the pain was horrible.
So glad you're feeling better now! You should celebrate your birthday in a fun way (but stay away from gas producing foods like onions, raw veggies, beer, soda... etc)
Happy belated Birthday!
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at age 28. Proctocolectomy and permanent ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free and medicine-free since surgery and very thankful to be healthy again.I'm not a doctor, but I have been told that I look like someone who plays one on TV!
