I spent 3 days in the hospital last month with a smo. I have been
having 'attacks' for the past 2 1/2 years. I thought it was really bad
gas and endured the pain. I went to the emergency room one other time,
and should of gone at least 2 more times. I had hernia surgery 2 1/2
years ago, a gastric bypass 4 years ago, a hysterectomy 15 years ago. I
know I have adhesions. When I turn over at night, I feel this one spot
catch and the pain will wake me up. I had a barium exam last week -
also missed 3 days of work from the runs. Have an appt on Monday the
26th with my dr to discuss barium results. I have changed my eating
habits since being in the hospital. I would really like to avoid
surgery again. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Besides the
pain issue, what are the impact of these recoccuring smo's? I have had
about 15 of them. 4 I would call major, the rest I endure.
I wish I found this forum last week, maybe someone could of helped with
the diarrhea last week. I laughed reading about drinking the fleet
stuff. I thought I was going to puke all over my cube at work.
