Well I want to start by thanking this community for all of the information I have read during the past three months. I had emergency surgery on June 10 for ruptured colon. Ended up with temp colostomy and hernia. I just had my reversal surgery and hernia repair on 9/19/17 and I am still in hospital waiting on first BM. The question I had, I am passing tons of gas and just started soft foods last night.... How long after I start eating will I have first bm? Also, this surgery was more painful than my emergency surgery in June.... I think because of the hernia repair... Any other folks that have had reversal and hernia repair feel it is a more painful procedure? Thanks
