Lauren. I started Pantoprazole 3 days ago. More distended and painful. Waiting again for surgeon to email. I wonder, as a possibility, if I have an umbilical hernia choking the bowel. I do exercises and sports.
Ah! That makes sense now! I have heard many times on here about people doing specific exercises\sports and it causing: hernias, bowel twists, and blockages. With a J-pouch we have to take it easy when it comes to exercises, we cannot do anything extensive.
What exercises/sports are you doing???
