Customer Question

I had my appendix removed and a small part of my small intestine . The problem I have is not with bowl movement that is good. But I
my body swell and stomach area like taped air that nred to be deflated. Once I move or walk or run it goes away but it's uncomfortable and my surgery side hurts. I haven't had much luck with doctors especially the one that performed the surgery! What could it be?

Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love and I will be helping you today.

How long ago was the surgery?

When you say that your body swells, does this include visible swelling of the feet, hands and face?

Have you had any evaluation for the symptoms?
