post surgery adhesions

I have been reading all the past post for the last couple of
months. I see a lot of myself. My history: TAH in 1983,
Gallbladder (by Laprascope sp)1999, small bowel resection, large bowel
resection, and release of an adhesions that was causing almost a total
obstrution in May 0f 2000.
I was always aware of the adhesions I just lived with the symtoms. I
now have a new set of adhesions which I expected. But I have one new
one that I am not sure if I should call the Dr or not. He knows about
the new adhesions and we both decided that I would wait as I really
didn't want to have more surgery. I felt I needed time to heal and get
my strenght back. I have done all that but well here goes.
My stool comes out with a 45 degree bend. I go through a whole series
of symtoms, ache in my back, it moves to my right side (always had this
before my surgery), then I have trouble breathing from all the pressure.
Not much pain just breathlessness. Then I will start to go and my stool
will be bent, then I progress to thin ribbon stool, and loose stools.
With tons and I mean tons of gas. I may pass gas 30-40 times an hour
for 2 or 3 days in a row.
So, that is my story, any and all advice will be appreciated.
I may have left some stuff out but I am sure you get the picture.
