Hi Ladies.

I just want to say thank you for all your kind words and get well messages i really appreciate them.

I am still in hospital, I have been very poorly and struggling to control the pain.

I had a x ray in the morning today and a bowel specialist came to see me. I have been told that I have a bowel blockage a large area is blocked they have given me 4 enemas and nothing has happened other than causing me to be rolling around in pain because of the cramps. The specialist has now said I'm taking a large dose of oral laxatives to soften it all as it looks like concrete and then start the enama again tomorrow feeling pretty sick already but it needs to be done as I'm in awful pain.

They have said that once it's clear I will be refered to gastrointestinal as they said I could have chrones or something else can't remember what he said, so a bit anxious I do hope I haven't got that.

I think I'm going to be here for a while yet😕

Just thought I would let you all know and thanks again for your lovely messages.

Hugs to you all

Jo xx

  • Hi Jo - thank god they've found a cause for your pain. It must be excruciating. Crohn's is autoimmune which could fit. Take care x

  • Hi, so sorry to hear what's going on! Can I ask...why did you think there was something going on for a while? I've thought that recently and just this last week noticed a lumpy bit in the top right where my colon is. It feels a bit like there's something moving through my bowels but it hasn't moved so its like its stuck. I had an ultrasound which showed nothing and been prescribed laxido but it doesn't seem to be doing a lot!? Xx

  • Hi Jo,

    You're really going through the mill aren't you? I'm sorry you are having such an awful time. I hope they sort you out soon and feeling a lot better.

    Hope your pain is better today.


  • Sad to hear what you are going through, wishing you a quick recovery and relief after all that you are going through.

    I hope you are well

    Jo xx

  • Oh bless you. So sorry that you're still in hospital but good news they've cleared the bowel. You must feel so wretched with it all. I hope that the morphine is helping. Get well hugs x x

  • Thanks hun.

    I'm ok all I want to do is sleep I'm on morphine all the time now that's the only thing thing that controls the pain.

    I'm a bit fed up of being in now and I'm really missing my kids but I'm having a colonoscopy I'm here on Monday which Im pleased they are doing it might answer some questions and I've got some other tests Booked with gastro as a outp so getting there slowly just so tired. Hope you are well xx

  • You poor thing. You must be missing the kids loads. I'm just glad they are taking you seriously and looking into everything. Good luck with the colonoscopy. I'll be thinking of you. xx
