I have had an awful weekend with severe bloating and bowel pain. I have been diagnosed with slow transit constipation (the nerves and muscles in my bowel don't work) I had major surgery last year to remove 1/3 of my large bowel due to obstruction. I was so bloated last night I found it hard to breath as my tummy was pushing up under my ribs. I am on a gluten, dairy and soya free diet and have not felt this bad since my surgery 18 months ago. I have had loads of laxido today but not passed anything yet. Do any of you get this bloated and what do you do to help? I almost went to the hospital last night as I was worried I had another obstruction. The pain was not as bad as when I used to get obstruction which was like having contractions and being in labour. I look 6 months pregnant my tummy is so big and rock hard. 😩.
