Pain upon eating, 3 weeks post-op
Hi, im looking for information about my condition from anyone who may have had similar problems. I had an incarcerated, strangulated ventral umbilical hernia 3 weeks ago. I got emergency surgical repair, open, direct, no mesh. Resection was not needed as blood flow was restored. My problem is that now, 3 weeks post-op, I still can’t eat much without suffering intense gut pain as my food is digested and passes through the intestine. I avoid the pain by eating just a couple bites of food 3 or 4 times a day, but this isn’t enough to sustain me. The doc says a colonoscopy is the next step, and I am trying to schedule that today. I am curious to hear from anyone who has had a similar experience. I can’t find anything like this in my internet searches. Thanks for any info.
