Then a couple of days ago she began throwing up several times over about 18 hours with theh vomit being made up of green bile. I am extremly worried and dont know what to do , could you please give me some information as to what might be happening? Thanks. P.S Anti-sickness tablets have not helped so far, as regards to morphine effecting the illeus she was only on morphine fro about two days after the surgury. Any advice would be apreciated.
I'm so glad thats out and done with...its served its purpose and it was time!!! poor baby, if only they could tell us. Snickers not well again either...poor little guy, what is causing his problems do you know Sara?
Tuck, Melissa, and Alison No more throwing up, but I woke up with a new symptom today, a horrible migraine, which I never get. Can anyone tell me why my head is hurting so bad that now I feel that I need the ER department again. I took my vicodin, but it is not helping at all. I just don't know why this is happening, my doctor appointment with the specialist is on the 30th but I think I may need to move it up.
she either is constantly drainage or so stopped up that she can't move because she is throwing up everything. they are talking about putting a colostomy pouch on the outside but she is worried about how big it is. I dont think she should worry but she is not me and its not my choice. what is some advice any would be helpful. thank you a worried daughter.
9th. She was told that she has colon cancer and was scheduled for surgery to remove part of her colon, on Monday, Aug. 16th. During her recovery at the hospital, she experienced extreme nausea and a continuous fever. She began throwing up black nasty liquid on Wednesday, Aug. 18th and again green nasty liquid on Thursday, Aug. 19th. Her stomach was so large it looked like she was nine months pregnant.
it has just gotten worse over the last 6 months.
Has anyone had there large intestine removed and had their small intestine attached to their rectum for colonic inertia and ended up with constipation after surgery? I heard that is a risk factor. That you can get the surgery but there might be a chance you will have constipation again one day. Also has anyone had their large intestine removed for colonic inertia and then their small intestine eventually give out on them?
my 56 y/o father had his colon removed with a reversible colostomy (to be done in about 2 months). after open surgery he was in alot of pain (which was expected) and later developed an abcess in his his buttocks and possibly in his abdominal cavity. a tube was inserted with a bag to drain all infection out. after one month in hospital he was discharged (with the tube and bag).
Hi - more frequent toilet visits are indeed a feature after a total colectomy. I found this after my own operation and, in response to anothetr medhelp patient I described my experiences on:- http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/523166 I have also found that over a period on ~1 year the number of toilet visits decreases gradually. May I suggest trying a diet with a higher fibre content - and especially try to introduce oats and bran to your diet.
If you type in gallbladder on the search you will find that alot of people have the same symptoms after removal as they did before surgery. Also some are still complaining of issues after a year. I hope yours and mine will improve with time. I know where you are coming from/ very discouraging. Good luck!
They removed all of the polyps and took tissue samples for histology and virology (they are testing for C.difficile =/) I have looked up the chances of having colon cancer and I understand that I am at a greater risk because of a couple of factors, like Crohn's and multiple polyps. But also I know that it is unlikely that i have it due to my age and the size of the polyps themselves.
I am new here. An am thiniing about this Colon Surgery. Let me start with. I am a Para. In the chair since 04. They did some Surgery, where they take a peice of the Hip bone and place it behind the Knee. So it can't be completly bent. Bent knee-No muscles-Pop apart. Anyway. I have no muscle control from the Sturnum down, on the Left side. Where they made the insition, there is nothing to hold the Colon in, so I am constantly wearing a Rib Brace around my waist.
The SITZ marker pill is a capsule that has 24 rings that can be picked up by a regular XRAY. *I am aware that I will be UNCOMFORTABLE after surgery; *What I hope AND pray for is Also, I wanted to add that a Subtotal Colectomy is surgery where they remove most or all of your large intestines, and directly attach the small intestines to the rectum. They may leave some of your large intestines (like 6-12") to allow you a little time before release.
I personally do not want to be a experiment for new drugs and I am done with having any more tests done on me (not to mention the dr bills) just for nothing to work for me and just for me to end up having the surgery after trying all that stuff anyways. I am highly considering the surgery. I have spent a majority of my 20's being tested, medicated and my life being ran by how my stomach is feeling that day. I don't to spend my 30's this was as well!
She can't eat more than a half a bowl of cereal a day, if that, for throwing it straight back up. She has to lie down automatically after she eats or it will come right back up. She's having a severe amount of pain close to where her gallbladder was taken out. She explains it as a pressure than goes all the way through to her back, that if she lays down or lets anything touch her back it feels as though its trying to press out of her.
Also had a problem with throwing up DAILY with overactivity which actually ONLY stopped after I had my daughter, once born I never experienced that anymore, and ALWAYS got frequent headaches since I can remember, and also have been fatigued for the last two years I would say, but has now gotten to the point where some daily activities have even become hard.

I didn't do anything the day after surgery but the following day I was up and around doing stuff around the house....I know I probably shouldn't have but I didn't lift anything heavy and still am not. My belly button is still a little sore although almost completely healed now. The pain was really not bad at all for me, but everyone is different. Best of luck to you!
I decided that I could not make peace with losing my uterus until I put in one last fight, and had the right people fix me up properly beforehand. The problem is, I just don't think I have another IVF or IUI in me - I just think with all the pressure that it would be my official very last try for the rest of my life, I just think it would be doomed from the stress of that from the start.
I had a colostomy bag until I was 16 and then had the reversal surgery. The Crohn's was pretty much undercontrol after the initial surgery with a couple bothersome events like adhesions and rectal fistula. But after age 20 I'd have to say my life was as normal as anyones. I may eliminate(bowels) faster after meals than most people and ( somedays) more often but over all I have led a wonderful "normal" life.
My mom was throwing up yesterday and today she has nonstop diahrea. She is eating very minmal throughout the day, but she isnt drinking a lot - we are worried about her becoming dehydrated. Her temperature right now is 99.7. Did you experience any of this when you were sick?
The following day I received a phone call from the hospital that the surgery was going to be in the afternoon and that the doctor will call me after surgery. I received a call after the surgery to tell me that the surgery went well and that my dog Jeffie was in I.C.U. Recovering an hour later I receive a call that Jeffie had stopped breathing and that I told them to do whatever it takes to revive him I received another call that my Jeffie was dead.

( I was actually supposed to have a follow up with my primary caregiver to have one after a trip to the E.R. and they said I possibly have Diverticulitis to confirm the diagnosis because colon canc (I realize some of my words in my first post are cut short.. idk why that happened. Hope you can still understand what I'm saying.. when I said narcotics don't even help it cut don't out completely so just know the narcotic do not seem to help my pai)..
I don't understand why I have the pain in through my back either, especially since it has been there since I woke up from the surgery. Maybe they can tell me something after the scope this Thursday. Good Luck!! Janice S.
Wait long enough and you risk a full bowel obstruction, meaning you may end up with a bunch of dead intestines due to loss of blood circulation. Throwing up feces isn't any fun either. Then you get the joy of bowel resection along with lysis of adhesions. Adheliolysis surgery is not a major surgery. A bowel resection is. There is every reason to have the adhesions dealt with sooner rather than later.
I would suggest that you do have someone be with you the first 24 hours after your surgery to lift things, help you up to go to the bathroom if you need to, etc. After that, I did laundry, dishes and stuff. Good luck to you. Keep us posted.
Painterlady- You say your going to be alone 3-4 days after surgery. I work for an insurance company & I know the criteria they go by. After major surgery the doctor cannot discharge you to home without someone picking you up & leave you at home alone if it is unsafe.
The main reason I've been given the no-go on surgery is that the cyst is located very close my colon that I just had surgery on. Their not to worried it will twist because the colon is kind of keeping it stable,but I am worried it will twist or burst then I'll go from a fairly simple procedure to a major ordeal. I always seem to be that tiny percent that weird things happen to.I go back for another ultrasound this Wednesday,if it's bigger again in a weeks time I wouldn't be surprised.
That should enable a complete spectrum of after-surgery experiences to have been encountered with the appropriate follow-up treatment. Sorry not to be able to suggest anything more practical. Wishing you all a complete recovery eventually.
