Oof.... dealing with a lot of nausea, which is no fun. My doctor and I believe my intestines are slow to wake up (ileus), which I know is a common issue. I was surprised by it because I would feel great all day, pass stools, and not be bloated. Then at night, my abdomen suddenly convulses, and I end up vomiting while having bm. It’s been just one consulvision each night, and then I just feel seasick for the rest of the night. In the morning, I feel better again.
They have me on a liquid diet and no really movement for two days, and they seem confident it will resolve on its own. I sure hope so, because while I can endure many health issues pretty stoically, I am a real wimp about nausea.
Also, I’m never sure about oral meds while on a liquid diet, which I forgot to ask when I talked to the nurse this morning. I know you can’t stop antidepressants suddenly, so I’m taking those and hoping for the best. I stopped Tylenol and ibuprofen, though, and I hope I won’t pay for that in the coming days. So far, no pain thta I can tell.
