Possible Adhesions

I had a permanent ileostomy nearly 14 years ago. Four months later I wound up with a complete obstruction when my small intestine twisted. Another surgery resulting in adhesions removal and seprafilm put in.

I have been in remission since then. In July I felt my intestine flipping around on my left side and it hurt for a few days. Made an appt with my GI at the Mayo, but it's not until end of Sept. Yesterday I sneezed and felt a flipping again and pain. It feels "swollen" inside like there is something stuck in there. I can still feel it moving. Slower output today so hoping there isn't a partial blockage.

I'm worried that it is adhesions pulling. The last surgery was horribly painful to recover from and I'm scared.
Anyone else feel this intestinal flipping and flopping around?

Can you call and ask your doctor's office to write you in if they have any cancellations?
