I'm beside myself now with what is happening to me. Had multiple surgeries, including a urostomy (have bag now, no bladder), gallbladder removal, appendectomy. Last year they say adhesions caused a blockage in the small bowel, which they fixed surgically. Ever since then I've endured constant nausea, exhaustion, strange unwell feelings accompanied by huge amounts of dilute urine that causes me to empty my stoma bag every few minutes. I usually cannot function when it gets that bad, but I do have about 2 weeks of relative wellness, and then I go down for a week. I am 50 so perhaps menopause is also a problem. I used to have bad flushes, but these have settled. However I do get very anxious, which is a worry (funnily - because I never used to be like that). Sometimes I'm so fatigued I just cannot cope, and I get tearful as I'm also feeling so sick. What is wrong with me? I have endured this for nearly a year now.......please....I am seeing a registered medical herbalist now, as the surgeon who did my operation said my digestive system will never be the same...but that doesn't tell me anything! :confused:That is what he told me when I said (4 months post op) that I didn't understand the chronic nausea....I never had this before the surgery. I was admitted to hospital for terrible cramps and diarhea and violent vomiting that only lasted a night. He said the adhesions were all freed up, so why am I still fighting nausea so much? I live on Motilium, anti nausea tabs twice daily, as well as my herbal stuff....

  • Poor poor surgery victim... Unfortunately modern medicine offers only two options for patients: chemical drugs and surgery when chemicals did not help. My regrets
