Hysterectomy Post-op Complications
I had a complete hysterectomy in June 2010 only to find myself being ambulanced back for emergency surgery 9 weeks later for a "torn cuff".  I was in bed another 9 weeks recovering from that surgery.  Here it is, almost 10 months later, and I'm STILL extremely bloated and experiencing gassiness similar to what you have right after laproscopic surgery when you are filled with gas!  When my cuff "tore", my bladder and intestines were quite literally "falling out".  With all the complications I've experienced with bloatiness, etc., I'm wondering if it isn't related to my intestines being pushed back "into place" this past August.  This is a DAILY problem I'm experiencing, and I'm eating LOADS of fiber & have even tried stool softeners to see if that would help any,...to no avail.  I weigh more than I've ever weighed in my life (I didn't even weigh this much when I was 9 mos. pregnant!).  I'm now approaching the top of the "normal" range in weight and am mortified.  My entire body shape has changed, and what has always been an asset (flat stomach), is now something I have to try to camoflauge on a daily basis due to severe bloating.  Is this normal?  If not, what steps should I take in getting rid of these lingering post-op symptoms?  I'm at a loss,...I look in the mirror every day & cannot find myself!  Please advise.
