I’m having pain like it’s another partial obstruction. It started yesterday and went away (7 out of a 10 scale). Tonight it came back again and it’s the same thing. I took some tums and gas-ex thinking it’s gas. It is usually like this when I get an attack - it’ll come and go until it hits full blast, in a few days time.
I’ve had multiple obstructions and partial and have just had many health issues (mostly auto-immune associated with my colitis). It’s just tiring! I need to vent! Now I’m dealing with drug induced lupus bc of the Humira and had to stop that.
Anyway, so I’m laying here, only able to take Tylenol bc the doc says IBprofen will do bad things to my pouch… but let’s face it..Tylenol does nothing to take the edge off. In the back of my head I have a back up plan for when I go to the hospital, if I can drive myself, if my hubby has to drive me, who can take my kid, if it’s the middle of the night, etc
The last time I went to the ER bc of obstruction pain, my surgeon saw the scans after and saidno obstruction🤷♀️ So the horrible pain I was feeling WAS an obstruction and it cleared before they did the scans or it was all in my head? Now I feel like an idiot and less likely to go.
MISC: I also have a brain aneurism that I am waiting to get surgery in July so I hate going to the hospital if I don’t need to. I was there literally last month with a horrible migraine and it turned out to be nothing super serious (just a mad migraine).
Soo…. do I wait out to pain at home or go in if it gets rough? I have 3 oxy from my last discharge that I can take of the pain gets excruciating but I will only take them if it gets horrible. I just don’t know what to do.
