Intestinal Blockage


Recommended Posts

Anybody else on this meesage board suffer from intestinal blockages from time to time. I have been hospitalized with this condition 6 times in the past sixteen years. I am typing this from the hospital right now. The initial cause was some botched abdominal surgery back in 2000.

Adhesions are often to blame.

Treatment involves shoving an NG (nasal gastric) tube into the tummy via the nose. Not a pleasant experience.

Sorry thta you have to suffer in that manner.

I couldn't help but think of this commercial I suffer through every evening news broadcast. 

I hate it.

[Edit] I would suggest you don't play it, the opening scene is bad enough.

Yup, those commercials give a new meaning to being a regular pioneer or irregular publisher... :uhhuh:

Thanks, Brother Richard.

The patient info board on the wall says

Jehovah Witness No Blood.

I'm hoping it will pique some interest. : )

 

I don't want to get too inquisitive or get too graphic but are there preventative things that you can do?

Gee, Ros! That Paradise situation is just around the corner, so hang in there! 

The method they have in use to solve that problem? No other way to do it?

Maybe some detective work, via a diary of foods you've eaten, might be the answer to solving the problem. Might be gluten is a culprit?

All of my usual 'tricks' , like laying in a certain position, failed. I haven't had to be hospitalized since 2005.

Alas, the adhesions have now become unfixable aside from surgery...which can cause more adhesions. We really need Doctor Michael. When I say that people ask, "Who is he? Your chiropractor?"

I tell them, "Actually, he's an Archangel." :D

I am gluten intolerant. Not sure if there is a connection between gluten and adhesions, though. Something to research. Thanks, Sister Peggy. :)

Thanks, Sister Dorothy. They still haven't taken the NG tube out. They want me to eat but swallowing hurts like there's razor blades in the back of my throat. When it hurts that bad just to swallow jello, I am not anxious to try toast and mashed potatoes. lol

Hi Ross,

What's happening today..Is the tube out?

 

Yes.  post-5984-0-68216900-1453061417.gif

Thanks for asking, Sister Eve.  

 

As soon as the NG tube was out, I wanted out.

They wanted to keep me a few more days, but

I'd had enough.  Took over four hours to get discharged. :uhhuh: 

 

 

After ten tries, they finally stuck the IV in the thumb of my right hand.

So I had to do everything left-handed.

I had a lovely view of the parking garage and the mountains. ^_^

I took my IV stand for a stroll and caught the view on the other side.  You

can barely make out Lake Superior in the distance.

I was really looking forward to the meeting this morning, but it was cancelled

due to blizzard conditions.  post-5984-0-39032000-1453061578.gif
