Had the same problems after my 2005 surgery with fluid build up [still get it] and was throwing up major amounts of fluid. The intestines were SO full of fluid that I could see the shape of them by looking at my stomach. Excruciating, and vicious when it started spasming. What happened was the surgeon squeezed the hypersensitive intestines [creating and exaggerating the functional obstruction] and my intestines went ballastic. This went on for many many months. I dropped from 113 lbs to 89 pounds. I still cant get over 100. Sounds like you have post-operative ileus. I already HAD a functional obstruction [same effects as ileus] and it just was worse afterwards. If its post-operative ileus, which is not an unusual occurrence, it resolves on its own within a month.

No suggestions - I prayed for my death.
