I'm going in for a camera pill on the 8th. but I've been having problems with pain on the side by my liver,sometimes goes towards my stomach. I've had this pain for a year and a half or so. I've had C-scans, blood work,and they haven't found anything. I'll get really blotted and this weekend I got constipated and was taking laxatives all weekend with little relief. I'm going to talk to my GI but, I was wondering if anyone has heard of that pill getting stuck?????? I did it once before I knew I had anything wrong, They found the crohn's. I had 4 spots at that time....They keep telling me my liver is OK, that makes me feel a little better....But how do you know if there is a blockage??????? confused

You will have a severe pain that comes in waves like labor pains. You cannot move any stool or air thru either direction. Once the vomiting starts you are in a world of hurt. That is how my blockages have felt. Oh and the pain I felt is always across the middle bellybutton area, not on the sides.

confused Thanks for the information I called GI and he's going to wait on the camera pill a I'll most likely be doing another C-scan and latter on do the pill....I'm still very confused about whats going on with me.... Yesterday I looked like I was about 8 months pregnant, and I hurt so bad, I felt so sick to my stomach, and its have been so bound up, I took 4 laxative's , 4 stool softener, and ate anything I could think of to make me go, I went 3 times this morning, but it wasn't that much...... eyes

Possibly a partial obstruction. Hope you get feeling better soon.

How long have you been taking the tramadol? It was prescribed to my dog a few years ago after major surgery and he became severely constipated. It does the same thing to people.

I have those exact same symptoms, Ne Ne... :(.... *I feel so miserable...* Except sometimes I do have some pain in the middle of my tummy... But... I had a colonoscopy done recently... And I think if there had been any kind of blockage whatsoever... the doctor would've seen it... So... I feel safe...


This must be just another flare-up for me... :(.... *Sigh* Hopefully, all the prednisone I'm taking starts to help me feel better... *And I'm going to start taking laxatives every now and then... increase my fiber and liquid intake.... Because man... I haven't been able to go since Monday night...* I feel so cramped... :(...


If you start to have any of the symptoms Nanners describes, seek medical attention right away... Otherwise... Might just have to wait until the 8th to see what's going on....


:(... Wish I could say something to help ya out... but as I said... I'm having the same problems... :(
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
