Wednesday evening started with a painful tummy, took some paracetamol and went to bed with hot water bottle. By 4am was woken by a lot more pain, by 6am I was calling the emergency paramedic. By now was being sick as well, an ambulance was also called and away I went to hospital. After getting better pain relief and blood tests and xray I was admitted to a ward. I read before on the site how painful a blockage can be but I had not experienced one before, until this day and now I know how bad it can be.
I now realise how important it is to keep properly hydrated and eat little and often and not skip meals, I think because of this I was constipated. The whole experience is going to make me alot more careful in future, and I,m writing this to try and remind all how easy it is to get caught by being complancent and forgetting that there are some limitations with an ostomy so lets be careful out there. Oh and yes I'm back out of the hospital now Friday night tummy a bit tender but stoma working again and behaving
