However, since then I have experienced similar crampy spasms every few weeks - sometimes lasting only a few hours, sometimes two or three days.¬†¬†During this time my bag is empty, and when things move again it is pretty slow and undramatic.¬†¬†The next time I saw my doctor she said that the gut is sensitive and with the type of inteference I've had with surgery it will be prone to going into spasms.¬†¬†She prescribed Buscopan to relax the muscles whenever it happens.
I don't find that the Buscopan helps very much.......¬†¬†Just wondering, do others experience these pains regularly - and what helps in the way of drugs or exersize?
By the way, I find the pain slightly eased if I lie on my right side in bed.¬†¬†Don't know why.
¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†I DID have symptons of extreme pain reminiscent of labor pains...They hit like a bolt of lightening, that would bend me over every 5 to 3 minutes apart, lasting only a few seconds. After the 3 rd day..I'd had enough and went to the doctor only to find out I was suffering from PANCREATITIS !!! I was in the hospital for 10 days, fed only TPN and fluids, no food, no water, restricted to only fluids for a week after coming home. It sucked !!!
Have you talked to your doctor? You may need blood test just to rule out infection buddy. Don't suffer if possibly there is a medical solution, okay? Please keep us informed and I wish you relief...the sooner the better !!!
You may be Colic.¬†¬†I had this very same problem, I talked to my Doctor.. was prescribed with tablets to treat Colic.. it worked a treat.¬†¬†I pretty much take the tabs on a daily basis. Although the pains were sharp n shooting, I have not experienced any labour like pains tho which I have never experienced but can only guess it to be severe pain.
I hope you get the problem sorted..
