Yesterday i startede having pain in the area of my stoma (I have a permanent ileostomy since Oct 2010). The cramping and pain became intense by 3:00 PM. I went to the ER via ambulance (we are an hour away). I thought I might have a partial obstruction because i ate corn on the cob the night before. I was still getting watery fluid in my bag but no solids. At the ER they did blood work which was fine. They put about 400 cc of soapy water in through my stoma. Again only liguids came out. I had abdominal x-rays and said there wasn't a blockage. The gastro on call who didn;t see me suggested i return home and call the office on Monday. I took 10 mg of Vicodan every four hours during the night. It has been 4 hours and I still have the cramping.
Any suggestions? They didn't do a ct scan because I have had so many. Any imput would be greatly appreciated. I fear I am headed back to the ER unless something changes quickly.
