Good evening - I am posting on behalf of someone close to me who is 1 week post-op emergency colectomy with colostomy. This is very new and very scary at the time being. As we process through these first weeks/ months....1 - ANY advice that you have? Pearls of wisdom, so we can avoid learning things the HARD way?
2 - ANY advice (AT ALL) for dealing with the "heartburn"? IV Pepsid and oral maalox aren't helping - neither are ANY of the clear hot OR cold liquids we've tried so far.
Thank you so MUCH in advance!
