Hi, I am new to this forum, but have Scleroderma and Colonic Inertia, as a result, am currently waiting to have an Temporary Loop Ileostomy. I hopefully should have it in the next month, I'm on a waiting list at a hospital, so it should be soon.
I was wondering whether someone can answer a question for me.
I sometimes take strong pain medication,f or my scleroderma and fibromyalgia. Would taking this medication cause me to have an obstruction when I have the ileo. As many of you know pain meds can make you a bit constipated at times, so I am wondering whether there will be a problem after the ileo.
