Hi Lauren. I am home from scope. Doc said my pouch looked good. My symptoms together with palpation, indicates to him partial obstruction (from scar tissue) and that just time, bland diet and lots of hydration should clear it. This is day 5 with no change. He said if pain becomes acute and BM's stop, I need to go to emerg. Probably, surgical intervention would be necessary. I had partial once with my ostomy which felt exactly the same. I had very little stool in the bag and then a few days later a ton and relief from the blockage.
I am soo happy that you got back to me about how everything went down, thank-you for remembering to do so I hope everything gets better! I hope everything passes very well for you.
A few tips for preventing blockages in the future that I personally follow is that: I drink water with, during, and after meals; chewing food very thoroughly helps preventing blockages as well, and moving around helps a lot too- but definitely nothing too extensive as that can cause problems as well. I hope these tips help you in the future.
Definitely keep letting me know how your doing with your symptoms. I really hope it gets better!
