I am having severe pain whenever I try to eat solid food and it is to the point where I can't hardly function. I am thankfully able to see my GI today. A cat scan was done at the ER Wednesday night and came back at that time negative for an obstruction. I was sent home on Percocet and Phenergran. Since I was weak and shaky on Thursday (this has been going on over a week) I ate a turkey sandwich and some food last night at dinner. The pain and bloating started again really bad around midnight and hasnt let up. I have been taking the Percocet and Phenegran both and it is not touching the pain. Is it possible to get an obstruction that fast? If the meds aren't helping what will they do next if there is no blockage and I can't eat or sleep hardly? The pain is to the right lower quadrant of and near the umblicus area (terminal ileum). I threw up once Wednesday morning. I had Remicade Sept 1st and am taking 175mg Imuran, 40 Nexium, B12 shot, Pentasa, Climara patch. Is there a med that will work immediately so I can function or is the only choice to go to the hospital and let them take over?
