is there anyway possible you could get a blockage from icecream with chocolate syrup on it? Just plain vanilla, not even with the beans in it!

this is what happened, yesterday morning i ate a banana and a bag of popcorn, but i had TONS of output, so all the popcorn came out, there is noway any could have been left, then another banana about 3 or so, and all that came out. I still had some more output but not much, then at like 830 i had a bowl of icecream for dinner (i know, horrible dinner!) and that was fine. Then at like midnight, i had some more icecream, i know again horrible! But after the second bowl i got a pain, which i thought was just gas, so i went and laid down and thought it would feel better in the morning. Well i got up the next morning and still had the horrible pains, and some output but not alot.
I didnt think much about that, because i had had some in the night. Anyway, the day went on, and i still had the horrible pains, i laid on my left side, and walked around and did all the stuff i usually do for gas, but the pain would NOT go away. I was starving though, so i ate a small banana and then realized it didnt come out! So then, finally i got a little tiny bit of stuff out, and thought ok, well still had the pain, but was really hungry again so i ate about half a banana, and nothing at all came out, this was like 2 or so. And it occured to me that maybe something was stuck. So i got my water and i drank literally two bottles, i filled it up, chugged it, then filled it up and chugged it again. then i laid down for a bit, and a little bit later had a bunch of output and i could tell it was the icecream. No popcorn in it.
How on earth could you get a blockage from icecream? shouldn't it have just melted?

First of all I think you need to revise your diet...hehehehehe . However, who am I to talk because there are days, but not since my ileo....so there WERE days when I did the same thing. I wouldn't think ice cream would cause a blockage unless maybe there were nuts or coconut in it. Plain vanilla should just pass right on through. Maybe you had a kernel of popcorn lingering somewhere which caused it. How are things now?

I would think it impossible to get a blockage from ice cream. Even though you didn't seen popcorn I'm betting popcorn is to blame. Glad to see you're on the mend.

lol christine, i do need a better diet, but most days i eat good, i just wanted some icecream yesterday!

I dont think it was the bananas, i guess a few pieces of popcorn got stuck in there, i just couldnt see anyway at all it could be icecream but i thought i would see what yall said.

I'm fine now, once it came out, it like poured out, then i went to dinner and all that came out just like normal.
Although i kind of feel like i had someone stick something in there and scrape it out! But its not really pain.

I vote for the popcorn, too! I ate a whole bunch of grapes the other day and they didn't really like me...tons of watery output...and then BAM it passed! I must have forgotten to chew:(

Glad you are better!
