confused   I am 31, male Crohns since 10. Several surgeries Illeostomy w a few resections. I am having illeus's or small bowel obstructions at least once a month that hospitalize me for days at a time. My FP Dr will give fluid and pain med while hospitalized until obst passes then we go home. Vicious cycle that we cant seem to break, anyone have similar problems? Thanks

I am writing on behalf of my son..he has had uc since 05, had 1st part of j-pouch surgery on May21st...is now in hospital due to scarring on his small intestine, which has blocked his colostomy from working..they gave him iv and clear liquids, and it started working again, but as soon as they put him on solids, it stops working again.....we are trying to get him moved to the hospital where he had his surgery...they either are going to complete second part of surgery, or go in and remove scar tissue...let me know how things are going for you....
