Three months after colon surgery

Posted by @joyce1, Feb 25, 2017

Three months after colon resection I had a severe stomach this morning and have not had a bowl movement yet. This is the first time this has happened. So far things have been good

Hi Joyce,
I’m so sorry to hear that you are experiencing such pain 3 months after your colon resection. I’m bringing @starrlight @sallyg @nannytart and @travelgirl into this discussion to see if they have some advice to share. It is painful to not have had a bowel movement. How long has it been since you’ve had one? Are you drinking plenty of fluids?

sorry to hear of your stomach issue, i have the opposite have several bowel movements per day, have you tried dried apricots, prune juice etc. as far as the pain i am very thankful have not had any thus far, will certainly keep you in my prayers for relief. what do you use for pain?

I also struggle with ongoing constipation which started right before Christmas. my diet is primarily plant based and lots of fiber
My doctor suggested I try a low residue diet which was difficult for me but I gave it a whirl
Didn’t help at all
So I am back on my healthy diet and find that drinking lots of water and staying active and moving really helps
And when all else fails try a dose of miralax
Fortunately things are getting better for me
Good luck
