I had my takedown in January 2011 and with the exception of a bit of pouchitis late last year, I have basically been in great shape.
Last night, I had what I think was an obstruction. I had eaten lunch around 1:30, and another snack around 4:30, and around 7 I started feeling really bad cramping and pain in my mid-abdomen. So I switched to liquids immediately. The pain just got worse, and I proceeded to throw up about 8 times in the next 8 hours (food going back to lunch). I felt like I had to poop but nothing came out. I drank a lot of water, then around 2:30am went and took a hot shower, and massaged my abdomen, because I heard somewhere that helped. It felt a bit better after that, I passed a bit of gas, and went back and lied down. Around 3:30am I got up to go to the bathroom and a massive amount came out, and everything felt better.
So I think this sounds like an obstruction, that has clearly passed. But I wanted feedback on whether this is what your similar obstruction experiences were like? Also, I thought generally if you were going to get obstructions they were sooner after takedown-- I am already years past and have never had that issue.
Any advice would be appreciated. I'm planning to do liquid diet and soft foods today just in case.
