Ok this is a little bit long, but a bit like if you were actually talking to me, or rather listening to me, as I write how I talk......
Im just curious as to how they tell if your bowels are partially obstructed?, And what is the definition of a stricture? Can you tell if you have one? what are the symptoms?
Im still waiting to see the doc on the 13th i think lol, its either the 13th or the 15th, and im going to ask him to send me to a gi, or send me for the test, that involves them sticking a tube down your throat under sedation?
Right now i am in the middle of what I call a flare up, my tummy is crampy, very badly crampy, i have went to the washroom about 8 times today, all diarrhea, well really really soft, but I had to push them out, meanwhile, before i had to go, I felt like if I didnt get to the washroom I may have an accident, i just dont get it!!
Is there anyone else who experiences this? P.s. People think that i am anorexic, i have lost so much weight, I had a funeral today for my nanny, it was the hardest thing ever, so there were quite a few people who hadnt seen me in a while, and they were all commenting on me, and saying how great I looked, and I said, well I wish i felt great, and I tell them that Im sick, and then they feel bad, i dont want people to feel bad, I want people to become familiar with what is happening to me......
I find that when I feel sick and crampy, which is about 90 percent of the time, i do not feel like eating at all...... but when I do get a little bit of an appetite, i generally binge, my abdomen, gets so distended, but sometimes this happens only when i eat a few pieces of something, or just a smally quantity or something, I look like im 4 or 5 months pregnant seriously, its disgusting..... The rest of me is fading away, but my abdomen, is disgusting, and when its not distended, its all lose, like as if I had a baby or something, i do have a little girl who is 5, but, that is what it feels like, since i lost all my weight.....
anyways, im sorry to make that so long, just really really curious, and frustrated, and scared,............
Thanks to you all for listening, or reading for that matter, if i can think of anything else, i will add it in later
Take care all
Hello, i have already had a small bowel follow through as well as a colonoscopy, and nothing showed so far, thus the reason for having the test with the tube down the throat.
So, correct me if Im wrong, a stricture causes the stomach to swell? I definetly have a lot of swelling, but i think that i also may have a tear or a fistula, as i felt something a wee bit ago, it felt like there was a rip in my hemorhoid, i know its gross, im sorry, but thats what it felt like, and another felt like there was skin, and then a hole, so im not sure what that was all about
I really really hope that they find something soon, i go back to my family doc on october 15th,
