Mom had her debulking last friday so it has only been a week. I am concerned yet I understand alot of the reasons she feels the way she does. They sent her home with dilaudid and i just don't get it. It is like dope. The pain is still there but u can't bitch about it. Excuse my french. I have begun to sound like a trucker these days. Anyway, she doesn't take it cuz she says it is not like discomfort from the actual removal. She says the pain from gas and her bowels is horrible. She has had problems since I can remember with her bowels and if she doesn't go daily it is like terrifying. Well, she says she feels the pain all the way up into her chest this like gas that is stuck. And she's taking stool softeners. I told her she should drink lots of water. It is necessary. I have problems with my bowels which freaks me out anyhow cuz she says i am like on the same path she was on so she wants me to get checked for cancer atleast when i am 40 and up. Colon cancer and such runs in our family but not ovarian cancer. Anway, I love her and now the depression is starting in. I know how it feels being constipated. It makes u feel terrible. But, she feels gas pain. She has been taking gas-x for years thinking it was indigestion and gas and here it was PPC. So it seems odd to go back to that. And yes, she IS on stool softeners. I am not like aloof to tghe cures for gas pain. However, when u have tried all this with no success, what do u do? I tried to tell her they actually remove ur bowels and stuff during the surgery and worked so much in there shaving her liver and omentum and stuff that if she gets gas it will feel terrible.
