I am hoping someone can help me. I had jpouch surgery August 29 2013. The surgery included both steps creating the pouch and take down. I also suffer from gastroparesis which increases my nausea and slows my digestive processes.
I am really concerned about my progress and want to make sure what I am experiencing is normal at almost three weeks post surgery.
I am still going to the bathroom very often but I am feeling completely constipated and after I go I feel no relief. When I go I am going very little and it I not formed at all. I try to push bc I feel like I still have to go but nothing comes. It's very uncomfortable.
My diet has been mostly carbs white rice potatoes bananas but when I was feeling constipated the last four day I started added some baby food fruits like peaches and pairs and yogurt.
Can anyone tell me if at this point i should still be going this much but not actually producing so much stool. any advice really appreciated.
