So as many of you know, I get blockages frequently. But they pass on their own and relatively quickly. Now it seems my CD has decided to throw me a curve ball. For the past few weeks I have had days go by with no BM, which is very unlike me. (Normally I have 6-8 a day). Then after 4 or 5 days of this I will have a half hour in the bathroom, only to repeat the cycle. I don't have the pain I would expect with a blockage or the normal bloat. Yesterday the nausea set in and today the dry heaves. I finally bit the bullet and called my doctor. I am waiting for his office to call me back with a time for a CT in the next 24 hours. Not looking forward to it. Both my doctor and I are a bit confused by this. My pain level is nothing compared to what it should be if I was having a blockage, although I am having pain in waves, just at a low level. Things are moving, just really slowly. I hate to think that my luck has run out.
