Wow. woke up in some crazy pain. I was lying on my left side and it felt like there was a tube jammed inside of me. I don't know if the tube idea came from a dream, but, I was holding onto the siderails of the bed. Not sure if I was fully on my side or not, felt like I was holding myself in place. The gas bubble or whatever it was felt like it was originating on my left side near my mid-lower back nearish the spine in the muscle layer. At some point I called the nurse, said I was in pain. The charge nurse came in and gave me morphine. Not really sure if it helped, or if the gas pain itself had died down (as it can do on it's own). Eventually the pain travelled around a bit. I think finally it's gone. My stomach feels 'warm' again. Not sure what my protonix order is/was. I didn't get any last night, so maybe need to wait till 10am again.
After he gave me the morphine, I had a 'warm' sensation that felt like a sheet of discomfort/hot right below the muscle layer in my abdomen. I also became kinda nauseous and thought I was just going to puke from the pain on my bed. Luckily, that passed without incident. But for like 10 minutes, I was still tearing from the pain, or the new sensations of discomfort I was feeling. I am still getting much less horrible intermittent gassy pain, towards the front not back now. But, seriously that may have taken the cake for worst gassy pains I've felt thus far.
