Brief Answer:
Massage therapy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It looks to be an mineral or electrolyte disturbance.
Drink lots of water / ORS solution.
Back muscles and calf muscles are going into spasm because of dehydration without electrolytes.
Get the muscles a light massage.
Hydrate well
Stroll around and do not rest too much.

Let me know how it feels in 24 hours

I had a complete hysterectomy by Davinci Robot on 8/25. I left the hospital on 8/26. I was back in the hospital on 10/01 with severe dehydration after diarrhea and vomiting. I was told I had an ileus . I was released on 10/06 and today 10/10 I am starting with diarrhea again. I do not have the nausea that I had before I was admitted to the hospital on 10/01. Could this diarrhea just be my body getting used to eating again? I was NPO for 4 days while in the hospital.
