I had a small bowel obstruction and was in the hospital 8/14 to 8/19. It was resolved with N/G , NPO, pain meds and fluids.
Today I have sudden severe pain in my right lower abdominal area (appendix has been removed) that wraps around to my back. It is causing my foot and leg to feel numb.

18 months ago I had a bowel obstruction with subsequent removal of 7 cm of gangrenous small bowel, due to adhesions from 40 years ago. I am 70 years of age, female and I ve noticed a steady weight gain in the past month, going from 150 lbs to 159, as of today. I stay away from sugary drinks, no sugar in anything, eat sparsely, many times forgetting to eat at the regular time. I always have a breakfast, either oatmeal or a poached egg on toast. Fruits and veg are always eaten. Water is on hand all the time. I live in the tropics and work outdoors a lot. This is very frustrating and maybe you have an answer for me. Thanking you, Patricia

I have ulcerative colitis and think I may have a bowel obstruction. I have been constipated and do not use laxatives but was desperate so took full dose of milk of magnesia and still have not gone on 2 days. Cramping and stonach noises present. Cramping in lower right side. Not sure if I should wait it out or see a doctor. Any advice?

I had a ct of my abdomen due to alot of bloating and discomfort. the doc says everything is fine except he said he saw alot of bowel indicating constipation, which i have never had issues with before. But when i read the report it said there were fluid filled bowel loops that didnt look REALLY dilated. Whatever the really part means kinda tells me it was a little. Doesnt this mean i may have a small bowel obstruction, it was found in my small bowel?
