Thanks for the replies. I have an appt in aprox a couple of weeks so will bring this up with the doctor.
I suffered with partial bowel obstructions for years before I went for the last surgery, the pain was relentless and I ended up rolling in pain after every meal.. You are right, it was the best thing I've done because up till now which is 7 years later I've been pain free for the most part. This time it's different, I don't have acute pain, but I am finding myself feeling stuffed up like something could be blocked, and all I have coming out is diarrhea and shreds of bits of stool.
Because of the nausea I'm afraid to eat very much, so that probably isn't helping to push things along.
Why do we try to put things off, good question?
