LC, Autonomic Dysfunction, and "Bowel Blockage"
I've been suffering from Long COVID for 6 months. Yesterday, I was admitted to the hospital for a bowel blockage. Surgery was unable to identify the source or cause of the blockage, and the surgeon was unable to clear the existing block. I'm left where I began, with nothing to do but take laxatives for constipation. As I lie here in the hospital, I'm thinking about the Long COVID connection. Clearly, autonomic dysfunction is central to many people's presentation of Long COVID, and the autonomic nervous system regulates peristalsis of the intestines. Has anybody else had a bowel blockage since developing Long COVID? Any helpful (or encouraging) suggestions?
