I only had two during the nine months I had my illieostomy but I definitely didn't feel hungry. They were both pretty painful. Both blockages woke me up in the middle of the night. Plus, I had gas trapped inside me with no place to go so that made it even more painful. I wasn't interested in eating because the only thing I could think about
was alleviating the blockage anyway I could. Thankfully, after about
four or five hours both blockages passed. Not fun.
