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

I have had a jpouch since 2009 and never had a blockage issue that did not resolve itself until recently.   Labor Day weekend I noticed I was uncomfortable and had diarreah starting Friday that was not getting better.  I ate all weekend and then Monday everything came to a head. I made it through the night barely and then almost called an ambulance ( I should have) but ened up in the emergency room anyway.  It turned out my small intestine that attached to my pouch was pretty much completely blocked.  They have me on steriods but my GI doc is too busy for me.  I got squeezed in next week but I can tell its not right inside.  I am eating from the massive amount of prednisone but I am going contantly and the pain still comes and goes.  I noticed as of last night I am starting to bleed internally.  Getting a Remicade treatment as I writet this so hopefully that helps.   I cant even get paid medical leave until my GI sees me.   I was in the hospital for a week  within walking distance from his office and never saw him once.  Health care in this country is going down hill and I don't understand why.  Cant work, cant get help, cant get paid.  This is great.



Hopefully you are having better luck.



Pete
