Follow up on scar tissue!

Tue Aug 10, 2021 11:21 am

My friend had a first consult with a surgeon that gave her a horrible diet but said surgery was likely in her future. She had a second consult with a different surgeon that told her that about 70% of scar tissue blockages correct themselves. Now that sounded a little optomistic but he scheduled a barium Fluoroscope and the results were there was no sign of scar tissue blockage and she could ease back Into her normal diet! Of course this is the best outcome possible so maybe there is hope for others that have completely given up on eating anything yummy for fear of another blockage. Maybe a test to see if you are in that lucky 70% would be worthwhile!

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

I also was concerned with Fibroids/scar tissue blockages after 2 major abdominal surgeries. Second one was to correct a problem with my first ileostomy. All within 65 months. I used Nattokinase as a preventative for additional adhesions and existing ones. I seem to be great now after 9 years:) Here is some great info about these enzymes and their many beneficial uses. My husband now uses 2 of them instead of blood thinners after a stent, but that is another story:)
