postsurgical gastroparesis - how long will this last?
I am one month out from liver resection and gall bladder removal surgery and am experiencing symptoms which seem to be worsening. (bad gas pain, burning stomach pains, back pain) I am eating less and less as I get so full from the smallest amount of food and it seems to sit in my stomach and not move for hours. It gets worse as the day continues and is especially bad at night, not allowing me to sleep. I am now trying to stop eating earlier and earlier each day so that I can try to digest before going to bed, but soon I will be stopping eating at noon!
I got these symptoms in the hospital after surgery, then they started to go away and now they are coming back.
Can I expect them to resolve at some point? how long might it take? how and why did the surgery cause this?
Any input is very much appreciated!
