J-Pouch, food getting stuck
I have had a j-pouch for 10 years (ulcerative colitis). Since then I've had a few blockages and surgeries to untwist my small intestine and clean out scar tissue. I've also had a hysterectomy and a blocked ureter tube. My problem now is 75% of the time that I eat, it feels like my food is getting stuck in the middle right below my chest. It causes severe pain and nausea. I usually have to lay flat on my back for a long time and push on the area where the food feels stuck. I have instant relief once the food is passed. I do not get bloated, but I can feel a lump where the "food" is stuck. I just found out that it's not my gall bladder and after having a barium x-ray study - it shows that my food is moving fine although very slow. My surgeon is at a loss and just expects me to live with it. Anyone have any suggestions?
