Yesterday I had a pretty scary incident occur. I was standing up talking with a family member and all of all sudden felt really lightheaded and dizzy, plus my body felt like it was on fire because of how hot I became. I sat down and within seconds I blacked out and went face first unto the floor.. I woke up almost immediately after I hit the ground to find a bloody nose, but not broken thank god.. Anyways, I know my appetite has decreased a lot since my first surgery (total procolectomy).. So I'm wondering if I've become nutrition defecient or possibly dehydrated... I think it's all mental for me.. I dont like to eat because I know the end result is going to be half the day in the bathroom with butt burn and possible incontinence... I drink multiole ensure nutrition drinks a day but was told I still had to eat, as one cannot live of nutrition supplements. I forgot to mention this has happened to me once before about two months ago while I still had my ileostomy. When I know I'm going to leave the house for an extend period of time I do not eat at all to avoid stopping at every bathroom I run across, how do people cope with the urgency in the beginning stages of recovery while away from home? I feel like a trapped prisoner because leaving home seems impossible right now.
