Here's my question-I'm 3 months out from my colon removal. I have a mucous fistula right at the top of the pubic bone where I had a rectal stub blow out and it seems like it's oozing more and more. I'm finding that I'm nauseated all the time lately. I can eat very little until I'm full due to the nausea. I still have a good amount of pain in the wound area also. I take Tramadol for the pain and Phenergan for the nausea but it isn't helping, I feel like I'm going to throw up all the time and it's really wearing on me. Any ideas on how to alleviate the nausea? I tried bland, still sick. Nothing seems to work! Help!!
I thought it was the Tramadol at first but I've taken it many times before and never got nauseated. My surgeon wants me to add weight since I lost 65 pounds in about 6 weeks prior to the surgery. I was close to dying and was extremely ill. But, if I can't eat, I can't put weight on and I'm worried it'll delay my 2nd surgery. Any advice? Thanks to all of you, this is a great forum!
