Ok, here goes. You may remember several mths ago, I took my roomie to the ED & she was in the hospital for a few days for a partial bowel obstruction. She saw a PA who works with her gastro Dr not too long after that, & they perscribed Constulose, which has been working pretty well, her bowels have been pretty regular. Recently, the same crap has been starting again, just not as much as before. She used an enema, & that cleaned her out really well, but she's still spitting up the coffee ground emesis. She sees another PA Tues afternoon (same office, just a different person). Is there anything she or I can do before then, or should she just wait to see when she goes to the Dr's appt?
When she was admitted the 1st time, the tests showed it was probably adhesions* (she's had a lot of surgery), & the PA was made aware of this, they got the results from all the tests. They did speak of scoping her out, which she's ok with doing, she just wants this to stop, & so do I. Any suggestions? Thanks.
