Unhappy Sigmoid Colon Resection ?

Hello All!

It's been about 4-1/2 weeks since my surgery and I'm experiencing almost like a pit in my stomach feeling. I also had this feeling before my surgery but not as often. The feeling is right below my bra line-upper part of my stomach (dead center). It happens after I eat and then i begin to feel a bit ill. This sick feeling can last for hours after eating.

Any suggestions?

Re: Sigmoid Colon Resection ?

Hi Jen......

I know the feeling you describe. I call it my gut ache....and you described the location perfectly. I also experience mild nausea with it. I've never been scoped, but probably should be.

My suggestion would be to buy some OTC pepcid or prilosec and take them as directed. If it helps, then you'd know it could be gerd-related. Also, try drinking some milk when you experience the feeling.....I know it helps me.

Not sure if this is in any way related to problems in our colon (I, too, had re-section surgery). I think we both need a look at the other end?

Good luck,

Thumbs up Re: Sigmoid Colon Resection ?


Thanks so much. Yeah, this feeling just stinks. I have an Appt. w/my Surgeon tomorrow so I'm definitely discussing this issue. Can't wait for the day when I can feel like myself again.
