And I am still paying for it! On Friday, some of our friends drove 1 1/2 hrs to spend the weekend helping us install lighting in our new home, and that evening I ordered Chinese takee outee instead of cooking. Well, I thought I ate "safe" foods, but evidently my gut didn't think so and I have been paying ever since. Yesterday was absolutely awful - my abd was so distended and horrible pains, but I was still passing pure liquids (so, as usual, I knew it wasn't a total blockage). I kept pushing clear liquids all day. No luck. I finally gave it about 5 p.m. yesterday and came home. The worst thing for me to do is to just lay around tho it hurts to do anything else. My friend was here with me all evening, and of course, there is nothing anyone can do to help but look helpless!! Finally about 3:30 a.m. I took some pain meds cuz I was so exhausted and needed to get some sleep. I slept off and on til about 10:30 and I still am having the pains but I believe it's a little better. Abd. is sore to move, still pushing liquids today - nothing that has to be digested yet.
Sorry for the whining!!! I really hate it when this happens and it gets me a couple of times a year. And, I never can predict what the perfect combination is that will "get" me!!! Not being in control of that really makes my frustrated and angry. And I just don't have time to be out of commission right now. I know, I know, I'm still whining.
So, I know Cece has had a blockage..... hers was worse than this one as some of you know. Anyone else ..... who had the raw fruit issue? Summer maybe? Can't remember.
Again, sorry for the whining. I promise I won't make it a habit!!!!!!! :)
