Reply to "Has anyone been hospitalized for total blockage of their J-pouch?"

I got a blockage from drinking prune juice which sent me to the hospital. I couldn’t stop throwing up. The doctor xrayed me and put me on IV fluids. He told me if I didn’t pass it in 24 hours, he would have to operate. Thank goodness I passed it. This blockage was 5 years after having a jpouch. Today, I stillI get partial blockages, so I watch my diet carefully. Salads, raw vegetables a big no no for me. When I do eat vegetables I cook them until very soft. I find it easier to drink a vegetable/fruit juice. (Low Fiber) and  if I feel that my bowels are not up to par, I start on low residue diet for a few days with much much water and more. That helps me. I have a sluggish bowel so my GI suggest I take a warm water enema every evening to help me empty my jpouch. Also he put me on 40mgs of Nexium twice a day for belching, nausea and excessive gas. I’m actually starting to enjoy eating again, but I still have to watch what I eat. I had my Jpouch in 1995. So I hope this helps and I hope you’re doing better.
