she didnt like the way I looked at all. Ive been waiting on Humira to get approved through GI so as to bypass resection. Had a fllwup appt with her today.
She took one look at me and wanted labs. Heartrate is very high, Im pale, looked in my eyes and under my tongue and then listened and heard no bowel sounds whatsoever.
 
I havent went to the bathroom in one week but havent had the urge and I had this belly button waves of pain, but they have kinda decreased. So she said if I start vomiting, get to a ER right away...cause she thinks i may have an obstruction. She wasn't acting like I was in great shape.
 
My thing is ...how could my labs be bad, if I havent used the bathroom to lose any blood??  How can I be obstructed and not vomiting, and why has the pain decreased, if I am obstructed. Any ideas ya'll?
 
I hate going to the ER for nothing! eyes

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

No bowel sounds and not going to the bathroom for a week coupled with pale and rapid heartbeat does not add up to good things you need to follow your doctors advice. Your rapid heartbeat and paleness suggest the possiblity of internal bleeding-just don't ignore this please.

Are you able to pass air in either direction? With all your symptoms I think you have at least a partial obstruction. You don't want to let anything go too long or you could perforate or worse. You could have internal bleeding and not even know it. Please listen to the doc.

before i had surgery and before anyone knew or even thought i might have CD i had terrible stomach pains, followed by the inability to have any BMs. nor was i able to pas gas. i started vomitting everything i tried to eat, and then started vomitting stomach acid and bile. DEFINITELY go to the ER if you're having problems like that.

by the time i got to the ER [keep in mind this was before any knowledge of me having this condition] i was completely obstructed and they were forced to operate. no fun!
