Hey guys -
Reading your posts, and please tell me if nay of you have been taking any anti-gas, or medication for the bloat. I had abdominal surgery to remove some lipomas, and I was in great shape, with a flat stomach. Now, I have gained maybe 8lbs in 10 days, afterwards, and I eat very healthy. When I do eat, I feel as if my entire stomach and waist is stretched out, and like I have a lip over my belt and/or clothes and it hurts to set down because of the bloat.
I was on pain medication, and they also put me to sleep.
The thing is, and this is idsgusting, maybe a week after the suregery I had a bowel movement ( with assistance ), and I swear a small kid came out of me, into the shower. Perhaps I cleaned my entire colon out, I have no idea, but I don't think I ate that much food in an entire week, ... but it apparently was there.
I am now a good 2 weeks after the surgery, and the bloat remains. From a person who has always prided themselves on being in shape, this really just freaks me out, because now, I'm afraid of another movement like above, and from the swelling in my abdomen, it feels like it, even though I know that sounds stupid.
Any pills, or exercise you all have done would be great to know, this is just irritating me.
