Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy/USG done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

You have not mentioned if she has pain while passing stool, find out if she is afraid of passing stool because of pain, if that be the case she most probably has a fissure in ano, which requires anal dilatation under general anesthesia, if fissure is ruled out by proctologist, she needs to have bowel training, find out if she is used to consume cathartics like laxative tablets or medicines in such situations she has to be weaned off from such medications gradually as she becomes dependent. In case she is employed and toilet facilities are not available at the place of work she should change her job, she should quit the habit of voluntarily preventing herself from relieving/ or emptying her bowels.

Hello lybrate-user, your current symptoms do not seem to be related to the surgery. However, I would recommend that you undergo a ultrasound just to check if there is no problem. It is necessary to determine where exactly are you experiencing pain and swelling. Most of the times it is related to gas or acidity but it is better to be sure.

A stoma is made to prevent the life threatening complication of leakage from intestinal anastomosis, (joint) when the patient is sick. Life will be normal after the stoma is closed, provided it is done by an experienced surgeon.
