Went to ER on Friday for severe abdominal pain and vomiting. X ray showed no blockage, CRP was 25 but last month it was up to 62 so the prednisone I'm on seems to be helping. Doc said white cell count was elevated but didn't get the actual number. Had IV fluids, anti nauseas and pain meds and that seemed to help! Went back home and have been having some discomfort but not as severe. It's been since Friday morning that I've had a bowel movement so I am getting extremely uncomfortable. So much abdominal pain if I try to pass gas or have a BM. I am still passing gas (just painful) so I know I'm not obstructed, but man oh man I'm uncomfortable. I also started a new job on Monday and I'm hesistant to take a laxative in case of the results with my new job! I see my GI Thursday so I'm not super concerned, just wondering if I could take a stool softener tomorrow night once I'm back from work and if you think that will help. I have a stricture in my terminal ileum, obviously giving me a lot of troubles. UGH.
Thanks for your input!
