sweetcorn

Hi all,

Stupidly ate some sweetcorn today.
The thing is it doesn't hurt when it comes out my stoma. It hurts going through my intestines before it even gets to my stoma.
I have never had a problem with sweetcorn before, even when quite ill. Just found it strange that it would hurt there and not coming out.

Makes me think even more about Crohns.

I know i am supposed to be better now. I am trying, honestly!

It just struck me as really weird hat it would hurt further up. I don't know, probably making a mountain out of a molehill!

I don't think so But it could have just not agreed with you for that time? I have things do taht to me all of the time. One day I can eat something, the next day no way! If you keep having problems, I would probably try and get them to look into it more.

I've also had particular foods hurt going through my intestines, but not the stoma, that never hurt before I had surgery. I don't know what to make of it either, unless it is slight kinking from everything still resettling in my gut with the colon out.

I was told that mushrooms were in the top 5 foods to avoid because of obstruction and I haven't been brave enough to try them yet. I do miss mushrooms too, Shazz!

Ok. Think i may have a bit of a problem now.

Nothing solid is coming out of Ozzie. Just lots and lots of liquid. Have emptied twice in the last 40 minutes or so. I have eaten a few pringles crisps throughout the evening and that normally thickens and regulates my output.
Hope I am not heading for a blockage! Have got pain but because I don't feel it like others not sure if its bad pain or not.
Don't know if that made sense or not!
Sorry

I follow what you are saying. Make sure you drink a lot of water since you are losing it fairly quickly... and fingers crossed that it's not a blockage!

Hey Shazz:

Also try laying on your side and massaging your belly. The ET nurse told me that this sometimes helps things move along on their merry way.

Hoping things are settling down, although a nice butt is a worthy goal!

Huoh! I really hope it is not partial obstruction... The flushing happens to me when food get stucked. Glump Chump advice is what I've been told too when this happens. Also, I find that applying some heat helps, I don't know if it is because it dilates the stoma or what but it appears to help. And rub your belly clockwise. I hope it is resolved by now!

Painful night. Quite a bit of corn has come out but I think there is still more in there.
Still lots of liquid but nothing more solid yet.
Had my heat pad on and massaged my tummy most of the night.
Will see how things go today. Still very sore.

Ok so today not been too bad. Bit of pain, for a change, and liquid output. Feels baf every now aand then but its bearable.

Another question. Sorry seem to be full of them lately!

Just had to rush to the loo for stumpy. Felt worse than ever before. So it felt like a semi solid something coming out. So, as you do, I had a look. Well it was blood. A few quite big clots. When i wiped there was a clot about 1cm long by 1/2cm wide on the paper.
Now bear in mind nobody has looked up there since 4 days post op. I am 12 weeks post op on Thursday and considering all the problems i have had this seems a bit lax to me.

So my question is:
Is this to be expected with my situation or should i go to a&e in the morning.

I cannot go now as hubby is at work tonight and I have nobody to have the boys. I am concerned with this as I thought I was on warfarin to stop the clotting in my blood.

You will experience mucus poo's yes. But they shouldnt be bloody. It will clot regardless of wafarin down there I would imagine. I know you said you are having alot of trouble with stumpy. And yes, someone should be looking at stumpy, because clearly that is where your flare is.

What is the news on a GI for you by the way?

My surgeon told me to expect to see blood from time to time as stumpy (ha!) heals, as this is normal. I pass a lot of mucus all day long and it is blood tinged, and occasionally clots. This is normal for me and may not be for you, however.

I would say just monitor things for awhile. If its just a few clots or bloody mucus, you're probably okay. If it continues and is more like something that you need a pad for, definitely get it checked out.

EEeeeesh! Well, maybe you should get checked out sooner than later.

I was thinking about all of the running you did to the loo yesterday up and down stairs. On the days that I do more walking than usual, I have more bleeding, so I was going on that thought. However, if this is a continuation of previous and just getting worse, you probably should try to get in to see someone.

The issue is that mushrooms expand in size in your gut which can then cause a blockage

Sorry to hear that Shazz. I know how frustrating it can be too. I had the majority of my operations at St Mark's in London and I'm 40 miles down the road and there were a couple of occasions when I had to drive to their A&E and get admitted. Purely because I couldn't wait for the op, my situation had become unbearable. I didn't want to have to force their hand, so to speak, but I was losing both blood and mucus to the point of being literally housebound. I had these huge pads (on prescription) but was going through them at such a rate, it was ridiculous.

If it is not getting any better and/or progressively worse. I would encourage you to seek medical intervention, be that via your stoma nurse or through your G.P. It will get better Shazz Take care
