I saw the general surgeon today to “meet and greet.” I like him very much. We discussed my medical history, issues with bowel blockage, and what will happen if it occurs again. Basically, he told me that the same protocol would be followed as the first time—CT scan to identify any definite blockage and hospitalization for fluids and observation. If it is determined that the blockage requires surgery, he would be most happy to be my surgeon (or one of his partners if it would happen when he’s not available). He did a quick exam of my belly and found nothing of concern.
He does not think my exercise OR my choice of foods is causing the continuing episodes and told me to keep exercising and eat whatever I want. Gee, seems I’ve heard this before, and a couple of times, I think it’s come back to bite me in the gut! I shall be a little less restrictive with my food choices and see what happens. Tonight’s dinner was stir-fry with lots of veggies, so that will be a good first test!
That’s it, that’s all!
