I have a stricture that is very narrow. It is about as wide as a very skinny pen. I has a balloon dilatation a couple of months ago, and it was no help. Lots of rumbly in my tumbly going on still. I've been getting signals for about 2 wks now that a flare is coming on. Saturday I starting feeling twinges of pain. That night I was in the tub, dozing off. All of a sudden I heard the most horrendous sound come from my tummy. Then I could feel the remains of my spaghetti & butter dinner squeezing through the stricture. I have had CD for 30 yrs, and a stricture for several yrs. I have NEVER felt this before. Is it a partial obstruction? I ahve been fasting since this happened.
P.S. I am awaiting a call from doc.
