Do you have a GI Dr?


Do you currently have an Ostomy? I had ileus prior to my Ostomy and it was horrible!! I could barely eat and lost lots of weight. The hospital I Was going to was doing nothing!!!! The ER visits I'd always show backed up and ileus but they kept telling me to get to GI doc but I already had one who said she wasn't doing any anything ;further but more laxatives and reglan . Oh and I won't forget being sent to a psychologist for ileus!!!! I went on like that for 4 years until I finally went to Cleveland clinic. They gave ;me an Ostomy and no issues.
I did get a bigger ileus after one of my surgeries that kept me in the hospital for 30 days with an NG tube.

Hi all i use to have blockages until 5yrs. ago i had resection surgery and old stoma removed and a portion of my small intestine due to crohns causing scarring leading to blockages, my stoma went from like a soda straw to a garden hose and now i can eat a hardy meal and not just soups or yogurts like before surgery.
