Having abdominal surgery makes you bloat.
Lying down makes your lungs fill with phlegm.
Then you want to cough up the phlegm.
Except when you cough that stresses the stitches in your stomach.
Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place. Desperate to cough up the crap in your lungs but every cough hurts like hell. Like being stabbed in the stomach.
Also just a case of having to wait for the gas to come out… aided so far by 3 packets of sugar free polos.
Normally that would give me drastic diarrhoea but no sign of that happening. Just a blessed signing fart every now and again.
