Abscess after tummy tuck

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess after tummy tuck


Avatar f tn This discussion is related to Problems after bowel resection. In February 2006 I had an emergency bowel resection. For no apparent reason, a large portion of my small intestine had twisted and the blood supply to my intestine had been cut off and died. About 40% of my small intestine (ileum and ileocecal valve) had to be removed. For the next 2-3 months I had horrible diarrhea after everything I ate. Within one week I went from 135 lbs. to 115 lbs.

Now it is in my left eye, I am due to have and operation which will go into my upper lip and gum to try and get rid of all that is in there and fat moved from my tummy to fill the hole. To say I am scared is an understatement, I am 70 in a few weeks and have lived with this for 6 years. Any reassuring advice would be oh so appreciated.

Avatar n tn I had a tummy tuck done about 2 years ago and every no wand then I get this funny smell from my belly botton. I noticed that it comes around when ever my period is not normal so it leads me to believe that it has something to do with hormones. I takes two showers a day and it seems worst after the showers as if the steem from the hot shower triggers it. I thought that I was the only one with this problem. I use a q-tip dipped in alcohol to clean mine and it helps a bit.
Avatar f tn I am hoping I will not end up with an ostomy (temporary or permanent). I have no idea what to expect after the surgery. Having to wait a month without answers is a little nerve-racking. If anyone has had a colectomy to treat chronic constipation and could share some information with me I would really appreciate it. Right now I am sitting in the dark waiting for a little light to shine in. Thank you for your help.

It has since progressed to where I can feel it all day... but night is the worst. Not as bad as yours, but enough to affect my sleep - and is now having a definite affect on the strength in my left arm. And no, it is not the "shooting pain" associated with a heart attach... nor does it start in the shoulder as in the case of bursitis mentioned above.
Avatar m tn He had two seizures, one on Sunday and one on Monday, at almost exactly the same time in the evening. After the second seizure, the vet put him on phenobarbital (97 mg/2x per day). He's been on it for five days now and is still pretty out of it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most of the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly. He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects.
