If your regimen doesn't include rectal meds...request them. I suggest enemas rather than supps.
It's a process of healing. I suggest you limit gas producing foods and use only one sachet of vsl per day for comfort sake. Maybe divide it into 2 dosages and see if that helps.
Are you passing gas? Or is it feeling trapped? More bloated? Because if you aren't having that, it's probably more spasming. Maybe another antispasmodic such as dicyclomine would be a better choice.
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
