Re: Surgery for Severe Chronic Constipation
I'm new @ posting. I'm currently 1 week post-op from a small bowel obstruction surgery. Lot of pain going on over here. About 7 yrs ago things stopped wanting to come out,[what goes in must come out] so I started dropping foods: no pasta, rice, bread, pastries, and increased fiber. I still eat 60 to 75grams of fiber a day. My bms were slow and hard to come out but eventually it happened. My first emergrncy surgery was 5 yrs ago, small intestines tied in a knot, necrotic, infection, almost died. For a couple years thing were a bit better then the slow down started again. Never saw it coming. Last week, more surgery. And for me this will continue to happen due to scar tissue that forms so aggressively in me.
I assume you have a "do not eat "food list. I assume you know that you are not celiac.Even testing negative for celiac does not guarantee you are not. Tried a gluten free diet? I suppose all of this has been ruled out. Have they given a name to your type of bowel disorder? When is this surgery scheduled?
Know your pain and concerns.Perhaps a surgery to repair before long term damage occurs [like mine] is best. Keep us up to date.
