I have been having partial bowel obstructions now for a number of years
and all due to adhesions. the last one was really bad and very painful.
I ended up having shingles as well. I went to the surgeon yesterday and
he feels that my large bowel is badly scarred as a result of a botched
hysterectomy. (they left swabs behind and the swabs stuck the bowel
wall) . He thinks I need an operation to correct this . This means
taking some of the bowel away and reshaping the remainder, he will free
the small bowel if it is stuck down. The thought of such a big
operation is VERY scary and I dont want it, but I really cant see that I
have much choice, what if it does not work !!!
I a having a CT tomorrow to see if there is anything else causing these
obstructions . I had a colonscopy last week and thank GOd that was
Does anyone have any suggestions ?? I know at the end of the day it is
my choice, I am going back to see the surgeon next week and I will talk
in length to him then so any suggestions would be very appreciated.
Thanks for listening
