I'm at my wits end! Had surgery in 2006 and surgeon perforated my small intestine 3 xs. Got sepsis and he took 15 ft of intestine out. I have NUMEROUS blockages and vomit stool, bile etc. 5 yrs ago had a gtube placed because stomach is paralyzed (gastroparesis) . That has helped somewhat as far as able to stay out of hospital when I get them. I have a suction machine at home I hook up to my gtube.
It does NOT help with the nausea, pain or any of it. It just makes it where I don't have to go to hospital for a NG tube.
I have also a colostomy, central line for TPN and meds, pain pump inserted in abdomen for pain. Since I have short bowel I don't get my nutrition so thus, I have the TPN.
I eat a little cream of wheat, jello and pudding. Doesn't seem to matter. I used to get the blockages 5-6 a year. Now, sometimes every week or 2. Said there is NOTHING they can Do because of all the adhesions from the sepsis and all I went through.
ANYONE have ideas to help me? I take Miralax 4xs a day to try and keep things going. If output is thick at all it wont go thru intestine and get blockage.
