That can get you after abdominal surgery. I got a bit of that after mine (fortunately mine only lasted 5-6 days) but movicol and an enema sorted it, plus lots of high fibre food, like bran and apples, lentils and stuff.....hope you're all fixed soon.

Hi ginger899 thanks for your message. My Operation went ok with a few complications can't believe its a month tomorrow. I was in a week due to having to have a bowel repair to as when they got inside everything was pushed back and I had a lot of adhesions on my bowel etc. I had to have 3 units of blood as I became very anemic and my breathing was terrible had to keep the oxygen on for 4 days. Eventually I got home only to be admitted a week later with a huge bleed i'd been in pain for a few days felt like a proper period. They did a scan and I have a hymatomma (blood clot) they decided not to drain it because of infection so am still bleeding but hopefully coming to the end now. Have to have a scan in 3 weeks. The only trouble I am having now are the night sweats and not being able to sleep because of gas pains. It is really getting to me now. I have also lost a lot of weight over a stone but I blame that on the hospital food as it was just awful. Speak soon x
