Post surgical problems........

I don't usually vent to blatantly but tonight I can't help it......This is a quick post for all those people out there that have had any surgery on your bowel.....it sucks sometimes.   My surgeon told me that the bowel is not a very forgiving organ....it doesn't like to be played with....and he was right.    The only problem is no one tells you that the situation gets worse over time after surgery and chemo not better.   There are days when I just want to scream and the past few weeks have been like that.   I am suffering at night and can't seem to eat anything these days..the upside of course is I look thinner than ever....the down side is that no matter what I put in my mouth I feel awful later.   I am never quite sure if it is actually my stomach, bowel or gall bladder, but no matter that part of my body is not my friend these days.

Just wanted to do a quick vent before I went to bed.......knowing it is going to be another rough night.....sure I am not the only  one!!!!!

Oh you sweet lady. My mom had the same problems. Things got so bad for her that she was excited and glad to have a colostomy bag. She felt so much better afterwards. All I can offer is my hope and a little prayer that you will have some good days and this will settle down.

Thanks, I haven't gotten to that place yet but in many ways it would certainly help to eliminate those 'omg moments'!....
