I had cervical neck surgery 3 months ago. After surgery, there was no desire or feeling to poop. The MRI at fist showed full colon and intestines, then after about 30 days, nothing was still working and then we went to the hydrocolonics clinic and had everything cleaned out. Since then, nothing has happened, 100 days with no BM. I have to go to the Hydrocolonics clinic every 3 days now to get cleaned. They tried everything form Reglan to you name it. THe doc who did the surgery will not talk or answer any questions, we found out that I had stopped breathing several times after the ventilator was removed in the OR. Then when I was finally breathing again after the crash cart came in 3 times, the doc ordered the recovery room anesthesiologist to give me 10 mg of Valium and 160 mg of Oxycontin. No one knows what's wrong and I have been passed to 7 doctors now. All everyone seems to care about if I am suing the doctor who did the surgery. Is there anyone who knows what this is??? I was 100% fine prior to surgery.
I was also given Reglan during surgery, and I had no problem for that medication.
Hello Mikie, did your doctor admit he nicked your spine during surgery? Or, was it documented that you stopped breathing several times? If not, this is a serious violation of the medical practice and liable for law suit under negligence and potential attempted murder. When you stop breathing anytime for various lengths of time, your stomach is the first thing to go when starved of oxygen. Secondly, if he nicked your spine during surgery, this clearly would result in your colon switch being turned off, simply because its not hooked up anymore. Yo may be able to get a top neuro nerve surgeon specialist to try to reattach it, but very risky surgery. What other drugs did he give you? How much do yo weigh? Those drugs are fo a person around 220 pounds.
