BUMP FOR UPDATE PG 3 breast milk is considered a clear liquid right? ot but please help me!
a good friend of mine is in the hospital. she is only 32 years old. she has almost died twice in the past weeks due to complications of her MS. she has a major bowel obstruction that was being caused by a 6 pound ovarian cyst that was pressing on her small intestine. she has already had three bowel resections this year and no longer has any large intestine left and is down to 40% of her small intestine. then after surgery she once again had an adhesion and her intestine perforated again which has caused a major infection. they have left the wound open in her abdomen in order to let it drain and because of her prior surgeries put a colostomy bag in as well. she has a 2 foot long incision that is totally open at the moment.
just this morning she was given clear liquids after hearing gas passing through her digestive track. this is a big step! i have been told numerous times that breastmilk IS considered a clear liquid on the breastfeeding moms sight (usually pertaining to nursing before and after a child's surgery) and just wanted to double check. i feel like she would really benefit from breastmilk (both nutritionally and as a laxative) and i even have a bag of transitional colostrum milk in my freezer which i feel would be awesome for her.
so please help me. have you ever heard of this? sources that i can print out and give the family? i know its sort of a strange request and a little ot but if you can help me i would greatly appreciate it!
