Hi Everyone. Friday evening I had bad abdomial pain coming in waves. Hubby took me to ER a the pain waves were up to a 10. Thank you Lord for morphine. I had (another) partial bowel obstruction. Not only did the NG tube suck, it also sucked out the contents of my extremely bloated stomach.
I was admitted, got lots of IV fluids and it resolved on its own. The CT showed that the only remaining portion of my gastric by-bass in 2010 has developed a small stricture at the jejunum. So in the future if I get another obstruction the docs will do surgery.
Anyway, I came home yesterday, wiped out of course, but feeling much better. Love, Butterflake aka Donna
