I had hiatal hernia repair about 10 years ago - the cut me from sternum to palvis and said it was the worst one they had seen - the outside of the stomach at that point was like raw hamburger and was causing internal bleeding to the point I could not hold blood counts. Now I experienced pain in the abdomon every since as I had ruptured out the insicion internally and had mess placed in and then about 18 mo. later needed to have 1/2 to 3/4 of my colun removed as I was experincing reacuring Diverticulitous. After this surgery I developed infections and had drain holes along the insicion for about 3 monthes that my husband packed several times a day. Now I am having more server pain and a pulling sensation under my rib cage on both sides and pain along the insicion - Most nights I am not able to get comfortable to sleep and Vicodin doesn't usally totally cover for the full 4 hours between doses. They did a CT of ab & Pelvis earlier this week and said there was influmation, a moderate hiatal hernia and evidance of IBS - any suggestions as to how to help my self? I am finding it hard to work as I feel nausous often and have dumping soon after eatting.
