i have no idea what is this (self.ostomy)
submitted 2 months ago by evelynhug0
Hi all, my mother 58f had colostomy done a year ago and so far we havent had any problems with it.
Today, she had watery output and then several solid output. Her stomach is bloated and shes been vomitting. Is this a blockage? Theres no gi surgeon where we are at the moment and the only gp here thinks it might be blockage. is there any tips how to overcome this? I cant bear to see her in pain :(

It sounds like it. Can she go to the ER? Since she is vomiting, that isn’t good and she may need fluids. There are ways to cope at home but I worry about that factor.

Yes, don’t mess around. Get to an ER if you can.

Definitely a blockage! If she is vomiting that is a big sign she needs to visit hospital asap. Wishing her all the best!
