I had J Pouch Surgery Sept of 2002. It was done is one step thanks to the fact that I keep myself in good shape. Since 2010, I have had 4 small bowel obstructions and been hospitalized each time til they cleared.
These have been getting progressively worse pain wise yet shorter in duration each time. Example is the last one, Dec 19 - 20. When I went to the ER, I was lying on the floor throwing up at a pain level of 12. I was NPO for 24 hours, pooped in 12 and went home the next day.
I have an appt with my surgeon on the 25th of the month to see where the problem is and determine the course of action.
Anyone out there had this kind of surgery?
I HATE the thought of them cutting into my innards again however, I more HATE the idea of another episode in the ER and hospital.
I am hoping it can be done laproscopically for a shorter recovery time.
Thanks all and happy pooping!
