Well, my new GP referred me on to a colorectal surgeon. Yesterday I had a colonoscopy done. He could not complete the scope due to a blockage at the site of the reconnection. To get a picture of the rest of my bowel I had to go to the hospital and get a barium x-ray. I felt ill afterward. My dear hubby took me home to rest. The doctor told us that the only way to handle this type of stricture is through surgery. We have to make an appointment to have another consult and discuss options. I will keep you posted.
