Hi sejiinro, I do not have diarrhea or joint pain, nor do I have any cramping. I do have a stricture in my colon and have had enough tests that I do not question the diagnosis of Crohn's. I did occassionally vomit with bowel movements before being diagnosed.
From my limited experience it sounds like you could have some narrowing. I would have thought they would have done a positive diagnosis from your first surgery? I know two people who had surgery 20 years ago and no problems since, others can go for quite some time and others have symptoms return quickly.
When my daughter had a stricture and was in flare, she vomited and had cramps that came in waves. When the doctor stopped by, he said to her, "You look pretty good," but the nurse spoke up and said, "Just before you walked in, she was writhing in pain."
So, yes, the pain from a blockage/partial blockage is indeed really bad.
