Hello. I had an emergency small bowel resection at the beginning of January. After two months recovery all seemed to be well. Then I had two bouts of stomach cramps and sickness during the night followed by a severe case of gastroenteritis which lasted about ten hours. Since then I have been sick a couple of times. My GP prescribed Omeprazole which seems to have stopped me being sick (so far) but I still get the gassy, acidy feeling in my stomach and cramps on occasions followed by diarrhoea and headaches. Mostly late evening/night but occasionally during the day. My GP has now also prescribed Buscopan.
Has anyone developed these IBS symptoms following surgery and does it ever go away? I have changed certain things in my diet but having lost nearly a stone and a half I can't continue to lose any more weight.
