Hi. I live just north of Toronto. My surgeon and GI are at Mt Sinai. I am having a CT enterography in 2 days. I am a little terrified in that the contrast drink distends the bowel and I already look and feel as though I will blow up. I can't have contrast due to extreme allergy, but will be getting a bowel muscle relaxant injection. My GI talked to the GI radiologist. They agreed that the pictures will still be good. I hope this guy knows what he is doing. The "obstruction/stricture/kink" seems to be behind the old ostomy extending to the umbilicus. I believe I also have an umbilical hernia. I won't get into my more frequent pouchitis, SIBO and blind loop of the Jpouch enlargement/dilation. Doc didn't really explain that on scope, but looked concerned. I feel my pouch has shifted or has become too large for the area. I know I am rambling, but any opinions would be welcome. Thanks all.
