I know it is early days really, just 8 days since this major surgery was performed. I spent 7 nights in hospital and came home yesterday.
The surgery was a total success, removing every visible sign of the cancer, including vaporising 200 spots on my small intestine, but my bowels and all abdominal organs were cancer free. Just removed my reproductive organs, the omentum and parts of the pertinium.
Eating has been difficult ever since I first became ill, which was only the first of August this year, 2017. And I had to spend a week in hospital during the first round of chemo to receive IV nutrition and hydration.
However, now, it seems that I become ill after I eat the smallest amounts of solid food, with terrible indigestion that is only relieved by throwing up, which defeats the purpose of eating in the first place.
My belly is quite swollen from the surgery and I suspect the swelling is pressing against my stomach. I am pretty sure I am no longer constipated and I drink plenty of fluids.
Is anyone else experiencing this? If you have in the past, do you have a remedy?
Thanks in advance,
