I'm hoping by the time you read this that things are ok with you. You've waited probably a bit beyond the point in which I'd head up to the ER. I'd be curious to hear exactly what they do for a blockage. Before my ostomy I used to get really bad blockages. I was one of those stupid people who always refused to go to the ER, no matter how bad the pain got.......and it got bad. I always managed to talk myself out of going........saying it will probably let go on the way.......or it'll free up any minute now. It wasn't until my Gastro explained how pain worked that I started to take it seriously. He said that even if I was able to take the full pain a blockage could produce, which he said could be way worse than labor (maybe you ladies on here can confirm or deny), he said at some point your body would shut down to protect itself....meaning I'd lose consciousness. That scared the crap out of me, pardon the pun...(but it does seem to fit perfectly here), meaning as I'm driving up to the ER, or while home alone. Despite me being a stubborn ass at times.......there's no way I'd ever want to cause a car accident because I waited too long and blacked out while driving to the ER, so after swigging some Phospo-Soda I'd give it an hour or so tops........and then head on up to the ER. There they'd stick an IV in and give me fluids.....but I don't know what they do these days. It's really not worth taking the chance of either blacking out.......or rupturing your bowels.......because either of those can have some very serious consequences. Get yer arse up there! And when you get back let us know you're ok!
