Emergency Surgery - Adhesions & Intestinal Oclusion



Recommended Posts

Hello there! Got revisión to RNY from sleeve on november 28th 2019 due to GERD and hiatal hernia. Got gallbladder removal at the same time.

Got emergency surgery on May 3rd 2020 (10 days ago)

A day before I felt sick, sharp pain in my tummy that came and went from a 5 to solid 10.
Started vomiting at 5pm for a nonstop 12 hours period

Arrived dehydrated at hospital, got a CT scan and fortunately they were able to fix me on time, before Any complication presented, like removing intestine or staying in ICU

Adhesions covered my intestine at the jejunojejunal anastomosis (the spot where they stitch/unite 2 pieces of intestine) and so producing an intestinal oclusion.

I was so scared and in pain. Thank God I am now recovering at home.

Any one with similar experience out there?

I would love to hear on intestine rehab, what you ate after and how long did it take you to be yourself again

My best wishes to all journeys taking place all around the world. Be safe!

P.s. Excuse my writing. I am mexican (spanish native language) and obviously my english is so rusty

So sorry to hear that happened. I’m a bit nervous for my surgery which is the revision to bypass and hiatal hernia and acid reflux, I had my gallbladder bladder out in Dec. I’m glad u are doing better and caught it in time. ❤️

Thank you Losingit2018 😊

Dear Jeep_girl1313, I had 4 major surgeries prior adhesions and oclusion
Doctor explained that the more surgeries the more possibilities of adhesions

You’ll be just fine!!

So far I’ve felt great No reflux at all
I no longer sleep with 3 pillows, nor wake up in the middle of the night to take anti acid medicine

You all are in my prayers now 🙏🏻😊
