HappyTimes, hope there has been progress in resolution of your blockages by now.
I am 13 years post Colectomy w/Jpouch from UC. I have gotten partial blockages off and on through years but they always resolved (with massaging) and on their own thank God.
However, now there is constant pain and more blockages due to adhesions on outside of small intestines.
I have EDS hyper mobility which is linked to numerous continued issues with my GI tract, including bleeding in stomach, over dilation of my pouch, strictures in GI tract, abnormal scar tissues etc so yes they would do best to minimize more scarring by removing adhesions in abdominal cavity by doing it laparoscopically. I am curious if you have had it done yet and how it went? At some point soon, I believe the daily pain and blockages will require laparoscopic surgery for me. Best wishes.
