been waking up last few nights with urge to go get up sit on toliet 5-10 min nothing lay back down stomach growls get urge again get up same thing been times i just say f it and go in depends I'm 8 months out during day all is good anyone exper this?
Happens to me when I have gas trapped near the pouch. Also when I have pouchitis.
I am about to go insane from it.
But this is not trapped gas.
Trapped gas? Pretty much just grin and bear it. The fact that it is trapped is the issue and it has to work itself out. I deeply massage the most painful spot, drink a lot of fluids, and keep moving. Eventually it breaks loose.
I eat an apple.....skin and all! It gets my gas moving through. Also, keep hydrated!
This happens for me semi-often. I love Prep H suppositories. They calm down the tissue closest to anus and, for me, allow the air to escape. I do this almost every night before bed and end up getting quite a lot of gas out before falling asleep...which in turn helps me sleep longer before my middle of the night bathroom break. I just make sure I put it in on my left side, wait 1-5 min and then turn on my right side. Often I get out way more gas than expected and feel that I just bought myself another hour of sleep before interruption!
