Hi, as a few of you know I am currently recovering from a bowel resection and from further surgery to fix internal bleeding.
I have generally been doing fine, and not been in too much pain. My bowel has gone into overdrive, but I was told this might happen (and it should settle).
Unfortunately, I also showed signs of infection whilst in hospital so was taking antibiotics until Saturday. I think they give them anyway.
The problem is I have had awful pain the last 2/3 days. It feels like I am being stung on my insides. It is intermittent but means walking is agony.
I had my bloods done yesterday, they showed slightly elevated crp and a high white blood count. The doctor said she will redo my bloods in a week to see if they had settled as I only stopped my antibiotics on Saturday.
I am just worried about the pain, as it is completely different to what I have experienced previously and has gotten worse. Any thoughts/similar experiences?
Obviously with all the problems I have had it has made me concerned.
