Dear Millie,

I am recovering from a complete bowel obstruction last summer. I agree that it is pretty hard to deal with, including the NG tube.

However, through many difficulties I have learned that to worry about things only makes life much harder. With the extent of my adhesion disease, sooner or later this will happen again. My goal is to avoid it by eating carefully. Meanwhile, I go on with my life.
