Stomach cramps post surgery
Has anyone had their entire large bowel removed, and their small bowel reconnected to their rectum, with no bag needed?
This is the situation I am in, three weeks post surgery now, and whilst I now have some energy back, I am struggling to eat and gain weight because whatever food hits my stomach (all low fibre atm) I immediately get cramps from wind. Buscopan is helping but I just feel full so quickly and don't have much of an appetite, despite being hungry a lot of the time! I've been told the cramps will settle down, am I just being impatient or will I forever experience cramps like this?!
Desperately want to eat better and feel fitter before I start chemo on 23rd July.
