I am so sorry Lois,
I think that we should all carry a card with a picture of our pouch from the inside out so that they know what they are dealing with.
Stay flat, do not over do it and let that poor valve rest a bit...no heavy lifting, pushing or pull stuff around (no, this is not the time to hang those christmas decoration or paint the ceiling)...popcicles, ice deserts, soups...keep it light and easy.
A nice hot bath would be in order too...relax it all and add a hot water bottle to that poor tummy.
Hang in there girl, I am rooting for you
