I was recently put on complete bowel rest, and am on a TPN feeding tube. I can have ice chips and that is all, no food or drinks. This could be for months. I wonder if any of you have gone through this? Is it really that bad to sip water occasionally? I have been in the hospital 2 times this month for over a week each time. I've never had a flare up like this. I'm on all kinds of medicine, and have been really weak for a while. A stomach bug is what brought all this on. I caught the flu over the weekend, and haven't left the house in over a month. I feel so discouraged, I need some advice, tips, and support.
