Hi,
It's been a few years since your post so I hope you're doing well and haven't had any more episodes of intestinal blockage. I had a colectomy in 1999 (most of my large intestines were removed due to chronic constipation) and in 2001 I had a severe blockage caused by scar tissue. I didn't have to have surgery but was in the hospital for three days. That gastro tube down my nose and throat was the most painful thing I've ever had, even compared to the abdominal surgery and two child births. Maybe it was the Fibro that made it so painful. Anyway, I learned that whenever I started with any constipation at all, I would immediately start drinking lots of water and really rest until things started moving again. I've avoided several ER visits this way. I also have to avoid raw veggies and fruits, anthing that doesn't digest easily. Hope this helps!
