Did they use any wax paper to cover the intestines so scar tissue doesn't grow back and attach? A lot of surgeons do that when this issue has occurred. This gives me hope though since we seem to be identical. I pray the tube is temporary, did they say it is? If it is not to personal can you share which hospital he goes to and who his surgeon is? Just in case I need to have 2nd opinions. I have a call out to my surgeon in Ohio Cleveland, 30th is my virtual visit with him, he is out of state so I had to pay to talk to him, oh well. $410 for virtual visit. Also when they did the bowel bypass what did they do with the bypassed portion? Did they just leave it in there, or take it out?
I also have a call this Monday 1st to talk to my current surgeon's fellow to go over everything, but like your husband something has to be done. I am on liquid diet, will not eat solids now cause the pain is to much and it causes me to vomit. It's really frustrating. Thanks CatSTaff and tell your husband keep on trucking, I am sure the bag is temp or I pray it is
Everytime I see people eating it makes me sad
....I want to eat, darnit!!
