Hi, what Sharon describes is accurate. However, the chills do concern me and usually accompany an infection. Do you have a fever???
Try eating yogurt, this will help work on putting your intestinal flora back into balance. I would assume that you were put on antibiotics after the surgery. ARe you on any other meds?? A med called flagyl will cause such symptoms.
I had a resection 4 years ago and still feel some tugging inside of me where the muscles were cut. I have gotten use to it and accepted it as part of life.
The burning sensation could be your muscles that were cut during surgery to restretch and tighten up as well as regenerating new nerve endings that may have been damaged during the surgery. As they wake up you will feel such a burning sensation.
Try to walk and do some type of physical activity to get everything moving again. Your body will tell you what it can and cannot do and what it is up to eating.
I heard that sweet potatoes are well tolerated digestively. Try avoiding sugary things since that will only cause more irritation to the bowels.
Hope that things improve and keep us all posted with how you are doing.
Love ~ Goody
