Its' quite normal. Even people who had their 1st stage and are on appliance (stoma bag), the chances of blockage and obstruction are quite common. Infact I used to have them very often while I was in hospital. It was for this very reason, I was twice taken off any oral diet (put on NPO) and for 3 months post 1st stage I was on liquid diet as anything I ate got stuck.
The golden rule is that do not eat anything hard, or fruits with seeds or skin. Chew every food properly. The skin of citrus fruits, apple, or seeds of orange, popcorn, etc are bound to cause blockage and discomfort resulting into vomitting and the entire plumbing stops and you tend to throw. My stoma had to be irrigated thrice and it got stuck and I felt like throwing and they had to remove the things through Ryle's tube.
Even in patients carrying J pouch (as I am today), the blockage does happen. Please take care of your diet. The blockages are also as a result of several adhesions or distentions which are the result of post operative complications.
