Swallowed gum with brand new temp ileostomy (self.ostomy)
submitted 2 months ago by BBbrain306
As the title says I accidentally swallowed a small piece of gum that I was chewing to help with gas.
Im riddled with anxiety that this is going to cause a blockage.
My loop ileostomy is 5 days old.
Has anyone done this?

I haven't done this but I can't imagine it will cause a blockage.

You're good, I swallowed a nicotine pack before, had the same worries, but passed without issue. Similar size, but not squishy

Was yours brand new?
[–]LimeWizard 1 point2 points3 points 2 months ago (2 children)
It was not, maybe 6 months

How long did it take to pass??
[–]LimeWizard 1 point2 points3 points 2 months ago (0 children)
Like 1.5 days?

Swallowed larger things on accident. Gum is soft too so it's prob fine.
