Hello everyone -
My mom had surgery resulting in a permanent colostomy six weeks ago - she looks and feels fantastic. She had been doing all of her normal activities.
Last night she started complaining about abdominal cramps and then during the evening she vomitted three times. She feels much better today and does not want to go to the doctor, as she is attributing the episode to the fact that she consumed a lot of fruit during the day.
Has anyone had such an experience? I am very worried that she is avoiding having to go to the doctors again.
