I am so nauseated and have been since my obstruction. Tonight now, I have been vomiting for 3 hours straight and ran out of my phenergan. I called my physician and he called me in some. He only tends to give me 6 tablets at a time. Is there a reason for this, I mean is phenergan bad to take all the time? I do find myself taking it daily since I have been released from the hospital but I have been nauseated since my colostomy.

Have you ever tried Zofran? I used it for years when I was nauseous and continue to use it for a few days following surgies because I tend to have a lot of nausea then.  It might be worth asking your dr about it.

It sounds like something is still going on...do you have output? How long ago was your obstruction?

Proctocolectomy in 2008?

I do have some output but not the usual amount. I was in the hospital for a week with the obstruction. I go in the 4th with a new surgeon and he wants to do a sitz marker test. He saw me in the hospital and said some of the intestines between where my ileostomy was and where my colostomy is now doesnt seem to be working, and may be dead tissue? So right now he said its like the other parts of the intestines are pushing the food through. I have stayed on pretty much a soft food diet since I have been out. I just started a new job and I really cant take time off for another surgery right now. Hopefully I can hold off until July.

Is it a colostomy? because I have a very slow colon, extremely slow transit the transit marker test showed, and my doctor said that I was not a candidate for a colostomy, only an ileostomy! If this is your problem, slow transit, then you may need an ileostomy instead of a colostomy. Have you tried taking mega doses of miralax to get the stool to move faster? The miralax works well to keep the stool semi-solid, therefor, easier to get it to move and if I let the stool get too thick, then I will just take MORE miralax. I have taken 6 doses in one day if this gives you an idea about how much I take. LOL If I take too much miralax, it just seems to melt the poop down and this always gives me some relief. ....Miralax works best for me because all other stimulant laxatives make me very ill.

Why did you have the colostomy in the 1st place? I am looking into having the BCIR procedure....I have colonic inertia and anismus, which is a pelvic floor dysfunction.

I also take zofran for nausea. I liked it better than phenergan because phenergan always made me feel tired....zofran does not make me feel tired at all.

Good luck!

I do have a Colostomy, I had a loop ileostomy but stool was getting through and sitting in the rectum and creating abcesses. This surgeon I met in the hospital said I should have never had a colostomy. He said I should have had a permanant ileostomy but my first surgeon wouldnt do that so I will end up with another surgery because of it. This is crazy. I have been taking one bottle of miralax every three days and that is a big bottle. I put it in every drink I drink. Nothing goes into my body without miralax with it. All my nerve endings are damaged in my anus so I dont have any feeling down there. I was suppose to have this colostomy now for life but looks like it will have to change. I just want to feel better. I loved my ileostomy after I figured it out but this one has been trouble from the start. I feel sick all the time. It has affected my family, me and my job because Im always nauseated and vomiting.
