This is for those of us that have ileos. Pouch people may answer also. Because they go through the same thing.
Over the last maybe three or less months I seem to get partial or full blocks. Not everytime I eat.
I just went through one last night.
I know why I'm getting them. I think. But my question is.
Does the problem get worse or damage your small intestine as time goes and I have more blocks? I definitely do not want surgery of any kind again.
Just wondering if anyone here has gone through a series of blockages. And what the outcome was. Or did it resolve itself with maintenance?
Does it clear up itself?
Does it damage the intestine with every block?
Ive had my ileo for almost seven years.
I know what foods to avoid. So that's not a problem.
My problem is and I address it most times.
I eat too fast. I do drink alot while eating. But. I eat to fast.
I'm just lookin to see if I'm doing damage with every block I have.
Blocks are painful. Very painful. Omgoodness. We know....
This is the first time I have been kinda worried about any of this. I've been very fortunate.
Even before when I had my colon I always was a quick eater. I don't know why. Just am.
I know I need to focus on my meals and take my time. But there are times I just slip up.
It really started with a full blockage about two months ago. I took Mirilax which does clear it up but takes a minimum of 10 hours to work. It took all night to clear. It hurt bad.
Since the full block (I took Mirilax) I've had three more smaller blocks. Mirilax clears it. But it's sore afterwards.
Gonna stop. I'll Ramble and confuse myself. Lol
I know my explanation is all over the place. But I'm sure someone can read between the lines.
