i haven't had surgery yet but i was just in the hospital the other day for the same thing, sharp pains in my upper left side. the doctor said it can be gas trapped in the colon where it bends (transverse to descending yadayada).
or sometimes even you can get constipation there and it causes pain.
it's better now but wow, i thought i had serious issues. amazing how gas can be SO EVIL
good to hear i'm not the only one who thought it might feel that way. it's so hard to imagine something you haven't done yet, even with hearing stories after stories. i always wonder about the weird stuff no one talks about lol.
i know people have to sip their water. i am asking people to explain to me how it feels. i have a real phobia of choking/suffocating and i'm imagining that you can't drink too much water or you will choke and that freaks me out. can you tell me why you have to take small sips and bites? is it because it gets stuck? does it come back up? does it hurt in your throat or your stomach? can you not swallow well because your esophagus is swollen or something?
i have no problem with taking small sips and bites. i can do it now and it's okay, i just want to know if you ever feel like you are choking so i can prepare myself and not get a big suprise when it happens.
