Reply to "Functional pouch obstruction/catheter emptying"

Winter wish the article and website is great-thank you! 
Scott- I am going for a defogram and pouch scope so hopefully that will help.

KC1126- this is very helpful-thank you so much! If my surgeon says to go ahead, I may bug you with more questions

I am just so astounded with how long it has taken anyone to figure this out. I have seen upwards of 5 colorectal surgeons the past 18 months via being admitted from the ER for bowel obstructions and they all told me it was from adhesions and sent me on my merry way once the Ng tube cleared me up. This is the first surgeon who said “hang on, something else is going on here”. I almost had a laparotomy-I was in the little blue surgery hat getting rolled to the surgery when she said ‘stop-this isn’t a mechanical obstruction’. If she hadn’t been there for a second opinion from her colleague I’d be recovering from surgery for nothing right now. I’m in a big city, so it’s not that there isn’t access to good hospitals here. Anyway, thanks all for your advice, the clouds are finally! Parting a bit from 18 months of awfulness.
