Feeling pretty crap at the moment

I’ve been on modulen for about two months now and, since my last scope showed the ulcers had cleared up, I figured I would try some real food.

This was a mistake.

Now, I’ve had pizza before (both while on the modulen and not) so I didn’t see any harm on trying a take away pizza. Turns out, my gut disagrees, and now I have a partial blockage.

I haven’t had much modulen since Friday night. Instead, I’ve been drinking a lot of squash and putting my hot water bottle too good use over the weekend. This has worked with blockages before so I’m hoping it will work this time too.

Day 20

Well, I jinxed myself. Sadly, my stomach cramps have returned in full force and my stoma appears to have stopped working. They’ve given me paracetamol, codeine and oralmorph which has only numbed most of the pain. I’m really worried it’s a blockage of some kind. I haven’t eaten anything that could cause one so it might be scar tissue.

And I was feeling so much better yesterday.
