23 male here. i had a colectomy 8 months ago due to severe uc. i have an end ileostomy, and i am getting jpouch surgeries down the line. my surgery was an urgent laparoscopic surgery.
since my surgery, i noticed that i feel full very easily even though my meals arent that big and my stomach distends quite a bit after each meal. i wake up flattish and in the nighttime i look very bloated. my digestion feels very slow in general. output is fine.
im getting very tired of dealing with these symptoms and they are taking such a toll on my mental health because i used to be very athletic and fit before i had surgery. i dont enjoy food anymore and im losing quite a bit of weight too because of how little i eat. i wish i could feel like myself after the surgery but i just feel terrible
1. has anyone dealt with this and found a solution?
2. i was wondering if these symptoms are indicative of adhesions?
3. if i suspect adhesions, can i ask my surgeon to remove them during my jpouch creation surgery? i know surgery creates adhesions but i feel like i should get rid of the ones i currently have if i have any
thanks i would appreciate any help cuz my goal is to get my health back.
