I'm sorry this happened to you.
I had a blockage a couple of months ago and had to have a small bowel resection to correct it. The abdominal scar tissue (from my proctocolectomy surgery two years ago) had wrapped itself around my small intestine and cut it off.
I don't know of anything we can do to avoid this from happening again in the future. If anyone has any advice, I'd love to hear it, too!
I'm glad everything is okay for you now.
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
