Thanks everyone for your replies. I addressed everything below. You guys rock!
Dave D., I LOVE LOVE LOVE popcorn and nuts. It's too bad that I'd have to give them up, especially when I have to watch my sugars and those are two things that kinda fit in a low glycemic diet - especially the nuts. I do take an iron pill everyday which may be causing the obstruction too. My problem is I do still have problems with rectal incontinence so I've tried to keep myself from having loose stoole and diareaha. It's so scarey trying to work and keep myself continent. I'm only 46 years old. I have many more years to work before I can retire. BTW, I guess if I had to chose between the abdominal pain and the NG, I'd have to say the NG, but the NG sure did mess up my left side sinuses. Even my jaw and teeth hurt for a day. During the two days, my left I wept the entire time - burning my cheek because of the potassium they were giving me and my nose ran like water uncontrollably.
2bColonFree, WOW that is so horrible to hear you've been through this 5 times. I could not imagine. I'm for sure going to watch what I eat. I started having pains last month, but was able to overcome the pain after a weekend home. Kept a heating pad on my stomach. Not sure if that was good or not. Also, I took Symax for pain one of my colorectal doctors had prescribed me. That helped to a point. This time, not at all.
Collicat, those percentages certainly are humbling. I was told too that scar tissue can play into it as well. That's what scares me to think that it could get worse. I guess I'm going to have to learn to deal with it on a day to day basis. Also, chew my food really well. I'm so glad your son is in college and sounds like he's dealing with this really well.
