Thanks Nanners AND thank you Mike
but does being backed-up make you physically ill to the point of severe cramps and vomiting? For me ...when I get backed up i feel bloated for a day or two and then the dam breaks and all is well...but until now I had not felt any truly dibilitating cramps followed by projectile vomiting.
I am wondering if it is a little of both some constipation and some sort of blockage as Mike suggests...but I have always assumed that a blockage would be constant and not happen just once a week....but then again never having had one I do not know how they act.
I will hope for gas versus an obstruction...but I am wonder about obstructions...
Do they take place anywhere in the system? More common in the large intestine versus the small?
I was scoped 6 weeks ago and the large colon was clear...there were plenty of signs of active crohns...but there was not any kind of obstruction or major scarring...is it common fo an obstruction to just show up in a matter of a few weeks?
