Thank you SO much for your time and consideration. Since I have no one but my son for immediate family no one came to the hospital and my treatment there was traumatic. The surgeon never came to speak to me though I asked for him many times. He sent his partner the 3rd day after my surgery when I had woken up...i don't even remember what he said. Then the anaestesiologist came and said 'eat a lot of yogurt' and when I asked what exactly was done he said your small bowel ' had gone ganged green - it had to be removed' when I asked what was left of it he only said 'you only need 70 cm for it to work' - i believe most of it was taken - probably over 60%. I will ask the next time I see a Dr. I do NOT have a GI guy, and I am looking now because I saw my MD 4x during the 2 months my heart was racing at 141/80 and I was in severe distress with fever, chills, golf size adenoids/lymph nodes....severe pain in neck, jaw and i lost my hearing - i went to the emergency room and they said i had sinusitis!!! I took antibiotics from my Dr...then did the next course from the ER....my MD is negligent. So, I will contact the surgeon's office who did the procedure. I'm sorry to rag but i'm traumatized...went from perfect health to this...and I'm SO TIRED. When my bowel was 'snagged' it was working though not well and I was not eating much and drinking MUCH water so it was masked...no distended tummy until right before I almost died the morning it perferated. So, yes I need to find out what they took out...the 'stitch' on my right side hurts if I do my Qigong, so I must move very gingerly..but what is distressing me is that I am so tired and sleeping 3 hours at a pop and I have to take a bit of a pain pill which i don't like....i am isolating and have little energy - i was also told to get B12 shots monthly and my MD said ' i only have to do 3 months and then you can get them every 6 months, i'm giving you 1000mg shot' - i thought - here we go again...this guy doesn't give a hoot about me as a whole person at all.
I'm eating; eggs, challah, a bit of cheese, i ate a roast beef sandwich and sourdough bread yesterday ( haven't eaten meat in a bit ) i took the metamucil yesterday and it did help bulk up my stool...the yellow diarrhea is gone today but I am stumped what to eat. I have scoured these boards for weeks - i forced myself to eat fruit today - watermelon, pineapple, cantelope pieces...i eat small bitty meals throughout the day and drink a lot of water. It's just hit or miss, though. I am also eating pasta, had a burger and that was 'ok' though NO SODA or ice cream ( bah) ( i love floats in the summer every now and then)
Sorry for rambling, i'm feeling quite like an alien and getting rid of the rage using qigong - but sometimes i'm SO COLD i have to take a shower to get my feet warm. ALSO my right foot is half numb. I fell off the gurney in ICU waiting for them to CT scan me and I passed out from the pain..woke up 2 days later. I had an epidural done ( didn't even have one when my son was born) and my right foot (pinky toe and next toe) is numb. I don't know what to do about this either. I'm overwhelmed.
I made ravioli with spinach and mozzerella and THAT was a rough night and next day. I go online seeking diets and found only a website offering IBS patients a diet book, and supplements to help. So, most of my small bowel is gone. I need a good GI dr, and I need to know what to ask, and what the heck to eat. I'm forcing myself to do Qigong because I've been unable to takke long walks because i get cramps and have to go or i feel 'full' and incredibly uncomfortable. I'm afraid I'm going to split open my belly, which has a long vertical incision from one inch above my belly button all the way to my pubic. I'm only 5'2 112 lbs...and i'm losing muscle which is also of great concern. I HAVE thought of calling a Diet Dr - mostly, I'm 'getting' that it IS a crap shoot. Some people can 'tolerate' some food and some can't. Is there any universal info that will help me?
I REALLY appreciate you taking the time for me here. oh and i'm taking supplements - liquid acidophilus/probiotic with over 70 billion live cultures, and liquid B vitamin, Vit C daily and liquid zinc,calcium and mg before i go to sleep....haven't slept more than 3 hrs at a time - trying to do qigong for my heart which concerns me too because of the months i was misdiagnosed and blown off as a menapausal woman - during that time i had shortness of breath and was quite weak on some days...my MD thought it was all menapause - and as i've only been hospitalized for childbirth i had no frame of reference to guide my MD or demand he do a Catscan ....i take responsibility for being ignorant.
Agaiin, THANK YOU...lastly, i might have caught a 'bug'. I had some sinus pain last night for a bit and i also had burning feeling in my vaginal wall. I took a 500mg vit c and some fruit today with water, yogurt ( brown cow) and a slice of sourdough toast...that's it so far. I'm grateful for your reply.
