Hi MacGyver! The symptoms I had due to strictures were after eating I would feel very bloated and gas pains and cramps. Then when things got really backed up the pains would start. Severe cramping and sharp pains would last for hours and I would also be very nauseous and vomit or dry heave alot. I hated the nauseous feeling. Is any gas moving through you and have you had bowel movements in the past two days. I would definitely try to go to your colonoscopy appt. and see what your specialist thinks. Maybe try a liquid diet for a day if you havent tried that already I always love just hot broth. Good luck and keep us posted how you are.
