Re: Hematoma after colon resection
I developed an hematoma about 2 weeks after my resection surgery. Like you, I had been feeling great so I was not happy. Because I was running a fever, my surgeon put me on the dreaded Cipro/Flagyl combination which made me feel terrible for about two weeks. She did switch me to Augmentin instead of the Cipro but then I just threw up after every meal. At least I felt better overall on the Augmentin. It was great for weight loss. I got back to my goal weight for Weight Watchers without even trying!!!
It is very easy to get discouraged when you have a little setback but hang in there--it will get better.
