Call your surgeon : Increasing soreness around your incision or increased nausea this far out from surgery could be worrisome. Call the OnCall number for advice.

Stool softeners : I recommend an OTC stool softener instead. Start out with miralax early when you are feeling constipated or bloated, there are several options you may ask a pharmacist about if you are overwhelmed by the options at the grocery store. This is much better than overeating to have a normal bowel movement.

From a Surgeon:: Hey there, speaking from experience in the OR: In order to perform this procedure, an instrument is used to hold or "lift" the edge of the liver out of the way to see this part of the small intestine. The liver is very delicate, and it can cause bruising of the liver that will appear like a laceration on a CT scan. However, the liver rarely bleeds so it's not a true laceration. Hope this helps.
