i have been attempting to not eat solid food for the past couple of days due to what i'm thinking maybe a partial obstruction...
question...do things such as pudding, ice cream, yogurt etc. count or should i not even be eating these things?
I've been trying to eat them along with Ensure so i don't feel so weak and tired all day...

I made it on a liquid diet for almost 2 years with partial obstructions.... here's what I ate maybe it'll help you.

vanilla yogert, frozen fruit (mango is easy on you), some banana, rice protien powder in the blender.... I used vanilla rainbow light powder.

I also made soup, chicken broth, potatoes, and whatever other veggies you can handle -- and then pureed it into smoothness.

I hardly lost weight, but I'm a non-typical crohn's -- i don't have to deal with the D, I get the opposite. But I had adhesion surgery after 2 years and the stricture mostly went away so I can eat regular food. When I was partially obstructed like you I could do the smoothies -- but not the soup. These "recipes" are also gluten free.

hugs, hang in there.

Hi mtgman - Pudding, ice cream and stuff like jell-o is totally fine on a liquid diet. Anything that you don't have to chew, basically. :P

Rider Fan: my surgery was in july - but it was for adhesions (my 3rd) - so I didn't have a resection. my colon was in the shape of a W instead of a ? -- the surgery has left me with the ability to eat regular (unpureed) foods, though I would not try popcorn, and I have to go easy on a lot of stuff - like no salads nuts rice etc -- it seems okay!
I actually did not get my DX for crohns till last month after my first colonoscopy and second endoscopy.

The pulling from the adhesions apparently were pulling so hard that is was causing the partial obstructions in combo with the crohns, those strictures ruled my life for 2 years.

I've just started on the crohns healing path. I'm lucky cause it's mild-ish. I'm hoping now that we know it might be swelling and not scar tissue inside the colon and intestine that i might have an opportunity to improve even more with crohns meds.

My heart goes out to the folks here.

Thanks! So the intestines were adhering to your abdominal wall? I wonder what would cause that...

Rider: I had very severe endometrosis and a few surgeries for it. Actually my intestines and colon were adhered to my uterus (now gone) ovaries (gone) and my bladder and, well, all over. that's what caused it. I also had endo on my colon and intestines. Once you go thru menopause the endo deactivates, so now I'm dealing with the fallout from the endo and the surgeries -- and now I know crohn's as well.
I'm feeling pretty good these days. I hope the same for you.
hugs,
