Oh goodness no, not for 20 years! I've had partial small bowel obstructions every 2-3 weeks since August and have seen 3 different surgeons, my GP, a dietician and a GI. None of the surgeons will do anything as they can't see where they are on any scans but do think they are from adhesions. It has been a very frustrating journey and I don't see that anyone will ever solve it at this point--there is no future plan of treatment other than returning to the ER every 3 weeks. So, I am trying to imagine how to manage this long term with work.
