9 Days Post-Op Pouch Cramping After Vomiting



Recommended Posts

Yesterday I had some Tomato Soup, and right away I could tell pouch didn't like it but I ate it anyways. I also had a serving of crackers (a no-no I know), thinking it would help settle my new gut. Instead, I had horrible pain all afternoon, similar to when I passed gallstones before my gallbladder removal. So five hours later I vomited. I felt better for a while but then the pain build up again, for another 4 hours later I vomited again.

Now the problem is Ms .Pouch doesn't even appreciate room-temperature Water, and my gut cramps up for a while after every drink. Clenching, icy, intense pain for a few minutes, that seems to travel as if the whole gang was protesting. I'm afraid to try to consume anything with calories, even worried above taking my Vitamins. Do I try Pepto-Bismol? Leave it alone and suffer through it?

I would try some Pepto and then be careful what you eat and drink going forward.

I'd probably just do Protein Shakes for a day or two until my stomach settled down. You're way too early out for Tomato Soup (acid) and crackers (simple carbs) - so that's probably why your pouch rebelled.

Go back to basics. Maybe just Water for a few hours. Then try milk and give it a few hours before advancing to Protein Shakes. Then just Protein shakes for the next day.

I used these a few times the first few months after surgery. They work pretty good for breaking down and passing something tough to digest.

Thanks GradyCat, I actually chose to stick to Water at first, didn't take any Pepto.

Catwoman7; oddly enough, I baked Tomato sauce with cottage cheese (1/4 cup of each) and had no issues with it, same with tomato orange Soup.

2Bsmaller18, that's what I did, just water at first, then I had some yogurt, later an egg salad puree.

ED_NW, hey neighbor, I'm in Portland, I have a version of those but didn't try them, I will have to remember them in the future!

I appreciate the feedback, thanks everyone!! It's 5:30pm and I feel like it never happened. But I discarded what was left of the soup!
