Reply to "Another Small Bowel Obstruction"

Tyler,

I am so sorry...I understand the pain and the frustration of the obstructions but if they are adhesion related why would the k pouch change that?

It is one thing if the pouch is suffering from a narrowing somewhere or it is stretched or folded but if the adhesions are up higher in you small bowel then they would happen with the k pouch too.

I have a k pouch and had to have surgery last year because I had repeat partial obstructions and 3 major ones (I only went to ER once...The other times I rolled around on a Pilates ball, walked, bent, stretched, twisted etc until it resolved within 24hr...that is my limit...after 24hrs it is strait to ER)...this is starting to happen more frequently to me and I need to be careful...

I have a surgeon who does every surgery through laporoscopy so we are trying to limit the danger of regrowth but they do come back...that should be your first move.

I am a k pouch fan, but not if the solution won't change the problem...talk to your surgeon first and see what he says...

Sharon
