I want to describe my situation to see if this maybe fairly normal and I should stop freaking out about it. I'm a 30 year old male, had my colon taken out in December 2011 because of UC. I just had surgery 2 out of 3 last Tuesday (about 6 days ago). I'm home from the hospital and here is what's going on. I'm getting some discharge from my incision which is basically a C-section incision. I can't tell if it's infected, looks like watery blood coming out, but it is concerning. I had a lot of raised itchy bumps on my belly last night, some were big like a quarter, others looked were smaller, but they were flat (unlike a bug bite where it's more of a mound). My hands just started itching today (palms & fingers), one of my fingers looked swollen, but there were no bumps or anything. I noticed when I got up to walk around that I have swelling on the bottom of both feet and it feels like I'm walking on a ball in the middle of my feet. I have no appetite at all, have forced myself to eat a little. I'm taking Oxycodone for the pain and lopreramide and metamucil to slow down my bowels and keep from getting dehydrated. They kept me in the hospital an extra day because my output was over 1200cc's per day and they said I would be dehydrated unless I got it down. I also have not had an erection which scares me. I did get an erection in the hospital a couple days after surgery in the hospital, with a catheter in, but not since then. I wrote a post on that yesterday and was told I'm probably fine so I should stop worrying about that. This surgery has already been way harder than the first which was getting my colon removed and getting a temp ileostomy. I'm wondering if I made the right decision to go ahead with the J Pouch because it seems to be one thing after another. Let me get your thoughts or if anyone else experienced any of these symptoms. Thanks for reading!
