I am a few weeks post takedown and have been having awful cramping and stomach pain. I saw my doctor today and she said I looked 6 months pregnant from the bloating. I got an x-ray done which showed severe bloating and my intestines are twice the size they should be. I have to get a catscan done tomorrow to see exactly what is going on for them to be so large. I can't eat anything tonight and I'm on two antibiotics, Cipro and flaggyl. Ugh. I was supposed to go back to work Wednesday but that's a no go. They offered to admit me but I said no. No way am I going back to the hospital unless I have no choice. My doctor said this isn't common but it has happened before. I hope there is an easy fix for it that does not include a hospital stay.

Yikes sorry you are dealing with this. I had the 6 month bloated pregnant look but it was right after takdown when I got home from the hospital. It lasted about a week and then it went away when things started calming down. Hope it's an easy fix. Let us know how your ct scan results turn out.
