Hello J Pouch family...So these last few days I have noticed that I have a slight pain and like something is trying to move through my intestine..I can poop but usually when I poop I have a sigh of relief lately its been feeling like Its not all coming out...I have read online about half blockage where you can use the bathroom and it will fix itself..Should I got to the ER? Or can somebody recommend something I can use to clean me out? Thanks

If I suspected a blockage I wouldn’t take laxatives. They have the potential to increase pressure in an already overstretched gut. The blockages J-pouchers get aren’t usually from hardened stool, so approaches designed to soften stool generally won’t help.

I’d only go to the ER if I needed hydration or if it were starting to look like I might need surgery to clear a complete small bowel obstruction.
