Reply to "1st time blockage"

You know, the first obstruction I really brought upon myself. My psychiatrist was really railing me about my low fiber diet weight gain, and maybe she thought I was a secret eater or something... I have no idea, but the weight bothered me too. So I thought maybe if I chewed well enough I could have salads and carrots and dip. I ate rabbit food an entire day, and by evening the pain was constant, strong and I thought I was dying. But I had never had a blockage before and every time I see a dr on post and I tell them I have a jpouch they ask to see it. Oh lord. I was scared what could happen there too! So I caused a pretty good blockage that first time. I did put a call into my gi clinic to see if I need to go in and at that point my Dr said unless the pain goes back to 10 with no output and vomiting I should be good. Then today I ate the hash. It's not as bad as the first time and I think you guys were right that I rushed the solids. But the waves of pain are scary. I just didn't know if that is normal after an obstruction or if I blocked myself up again. Definitely in the future I'm going to stick to the diet, and for sure I'll be on liquids for quite a while before trying gentle foods. This is horrible! Good points about the dangers of waiting too. I've had my appendix rupture so you'd think I would be really worried if anything like that could happen with an onstruction. I didn't even think of it. Thanks for the replys. It's been great to have people who have been there before tell me what to do, be aware of, etc...
