Thank you in advance for reading.
I had a blockage that cleared in the hospital after five days due to adhesions (we assume). Since then (three weeks), eating is a nightmare. I had two CTs There and the first showed the blockage In the lower right quadrant (where I feel my sense of blockages and contractions since) and the second showed it cleared but stopping in my rectum (I have an IRA). I had a followup scope that showed a patent anastomosis. I do have pelvic floor dysfunction so that hold up may be the cause of that. But I feel it higher up again.
I am living on jello, broth, and ice cream (for calories). I felt it brewing for a few weeks before it happened, so this has been awhile.
Every few days I try something more solid (fish, tofu, puréed veg), and feel things slowing or getting stuck.
ive also had to take lactulose daily and many warm water enemas.
i know docs don’t want to do surgery and I understand why — I don’t want to create more problems! But will this ever clear up or am I on a liquid diet and laxatives forever?
ill bring it up again to my surgeon but not convinced they’ll do anything about it. I’d like feedback from someone who has been there hopefully.
