Looking for anyone who has gone through ilieus post reconnection. And their stories. I am on day 8 post op and have had no gas passed or bowel movements yet. This is the most painful thing I have ever encountered. My belly is like a barrel and full of gas but it is not going anywhere. I got a c t scan done and there is a blockage at the reconnection site. They say it’s most likely swelling. And to wait for it to go down. But what if it does not go down and is just plan blocked. This pain is worse than the perforation pain from the attacke in March that resulted in the colostomy. I have had diverticulitis for over 10 years.
