Around 8pm: I left my friends house because I was feeling a partial blockage coming. . . It got progressively worse until I was doubled over in pain and writhing back and forth on the bed near my wife.
This was by far the worst blockage yet. I took 3 scolding hot baths which helped temporarily, and once I would get out I was doubled over again.
I drank water in between bouts of crying to my wife. . . She rubbed my back as I laid with the heating bad. We kept debating whether I should go to the emergency room, but decided against it (if at all possible) because of cost and didn’t want any radiation (scans) which they certainly would have given me.
I couldn’t take pain medication because I’m getting drug tested (hair follicle test) for an upcoming job, and I didn’t want to fail it.
With that said, I was completely miserable for about 8 hours straight until the blockage finally resolved on it’s own!
This is the third blockage I’ve had in a month and it’s starting to worry me. Everything else seems good including my blood work. Any ideas what could be happening?
I’m really hoping that I can get the reversal surgery to have a J-pouch!
Update:4:38AM- finally feeling better though the after effects of abdominal pain and distention are there.
Anyways, I’m headed to bed. Good night and thanks to all that replied!
