okay it Laura I know it’s been a while
it doesn’t do you know who well my Facebook page
know that I i have been in the hospital I was in the hospital
at been out for about week now so I’m
I had a blockage and so I be aired
that I could talk about blockages now
and really like said that my hospital up to you what my friends my goal I can
make a video
blockages now neglected you religious I’m silver lining
my yet yet so I’m blockages
let’s talk about first about what they are so
blockages are on either
from food or and keygens I started %um
I’m in your digestive tract and system
and blockage is bad I’m your stomach does not
output so there’s something called I blockage which
nothing comes out not even gas know something called partial blockage which
gas comes out but still that’s not I’m song
that really like the key component that
I’m you know there’s not an app which and
my fandoms at least and I know that these are very common
I tons of pain and if not really bloated
nothing was passing like this that she’s me and that I started throwing up
so I have a lot just before but this is the first one that sent me to the
so I wanna talk about what you can do at home
when you first get a blockage on this is kinda
like crash time and gas I would call it because
on this is usually when I do and it how
the blockage past so walking always helps things new
along I’m I walk after Neil sometimes you just delay
you know how myself doj Aston
moving climb so walking is really key I’m great you something egregious
breakdown I am moon and blockages so
produces I always have great use in-house so that
million brightness while and then a hot beverage at are really good so I used in
when I start feeling watched you sheesh another thing you can do is take a hot
shower hot bath
and I did this but unfortunately it just
I don’t know I thought which includes I’m so much
and lasting that I know I’ve been pleased post love you have any other
I’m just a massage around your stoma
not your actual cell and that you’re after then NewsCenter drought-like
around it trying to encourage the states like %uh
out on and another thing that can happen sometimes is that
your stomach gets swollen when you have a blockage in dogs and we’re
also you I’m change your ass me wait for her
2:58and what color their whole and I did that as well
3:02so for some reason those things just didn’t work for me this time
3:05she so let’s talk about when you go to the hospital %uh
3:09I’m I don’t know if it’s a good thing
3:12issue way into know you’re growing up profusely but that’s what I did
3:16I’m and I was in so much pain
3:19that I but could barely make it down I love Arthur
3:23like it and make it down the stairs she get my ride:
3:26and so I would not suggest waiting that long
3:30home I he had an exam that day and I was really trying to like clear myself but
3:37it just didn’t work
3:37so and I
3:41went to my GI doctor likely he made room for me and he admitted me
3:45so how do they treat blockages so they say
3:49another thing when I like some things work for some people but I think da
3:53and and so what the general idea is
3:56who won the evening pain medication sure they get anyone pain medication because
4:01it’s very painful
4:02an and they inserted a catheter and most of my which Jack doesn’t hurt too much
4:09just feel kinda like pressure and an
4:12yeah and maybe a little uncomfortable
4:15it just come here and it’s not it’s not anything terrible of
4:19I’m so they put a catheter and because that’s like in hopes to
4:23kinda clear everything out and then a
4:26they just give you good your NPR because 940
4:29at those the if you don’t know and because you don’t wanna
4:34you accidentally with your body actual naturally produces that later on that
4:38because nothing’s going
4:39out and even if you don’t hear anything your body a body
4:42the the that produced it about a leader of the day
4:46lot that’s not being passed so I’m
4:50and then they also usually do. energy to use the journeys of gastric to use they
4:55got their noses in it your stomach down
4:57running your story I’m as you guys know if you’d like
5:01followed anything I’m I’m
5:04heat them absolutely antenna and I refused a
5:09the four-time and they’re really really mad at me and this time
5:13like I probably wasn’t and right and finally I
5:17had thrown up like the last time and high my abdomen is still so sore from
5:21throwing up so much I’m
5:22don’t even know I probably twenty plus friends in one day I throughout the news
5:27just like
5:27for me filed by Pandit I’m
5:31so how I was finally ready because those in so much pain
5:35and that and they came and I was like I’m ready for the end you may like you
5:39know I
5:40its like again but ehh I will each though they didn’t do the ng2
5:45when it did pass but but me being very stubborn and once again I do not suggest
5:50I think that doctors generally no bashed
5:53and so anyways
5:56at what they did for me and my claim I’m past that sometimes it does not have a
6:01Irish surgery and which is a whole nother
6:05but and I’m generally I think that you surgery for people who have yes
6:11I’m just start issue and this is like the scary thing to me you can’t
6:16I a properly that’s what happened i and
6:19feel so stupid because I’ve been slowly like trying to increase my diet my head
6:25broccoli and carrots and cauliflower couple times successfully
6:28so and that’s why I was feeling pretty comfortable with and I didn’t choose
6:32well they should have and it literally was the broccoli
6:35that sent me to the hospital which is like ridiculous future so I’m
6:41diet and they told me that i have problem
6:45rapidly probably also have it he chose and this may happen again
6:49even if you don’t do anything wrong and
6:52that kind of a snap-back I am
6:56and Amy the that lifetime experience it was
7:01painfully ass but an
7:04it was really easy you recovery knock on my door I’m
7:09after getting out of the hospital because it’s not like your disease let
7:13or anything like that where I really like shut your body down it just feels
7:17terrible I’m used to it so sick
7:19I’m this is really painful and it’s really different call and you don’t feel
7:23well and you’re gonna throw up a lot on your gonna
7:25European time the pain not gonna wanna get outta bad
7:29but after it clears and after a few days like
7:32you will see okay it’s not like having to reveal yourself like after
7:36where or after surgery so I’m that
7:40was really nice is kinda nice surprise for me to be able to like get back into

    hey laura, i just kinda randomly stumbled across your videos. I was
    actually reading up on continuing education credits to update my nursing
    license and looked up stuff on ostomies and strictureplasty just for the
    heck of it. I just happened to glance at the pic on your video and at first
    i thought maybe you were just showing a video on how-to and not that you
    actually had an ostomy or had IBD. wow, thanks for being real and sharing
    your life experiences with the world.

  2. illusionistdave   April 28, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    How often do you generally have blockages? I had my colostomy a little
    under 2 years ago and have had two blockages. I absolutely HATE the NG

  3. Ryan Stanley   April 28, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    Hey! I have a serious question about your stoma (and stomas in general).
    Are they tough? I mean if you were maybe hit in the stomach or tackled by
    someone, would it cause actual damage to your stoma and possibly internal
    damage of the intestines? Just curious. Thanks!?

  4. Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox   April 28, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    I’m really glad to hear that you’re out of hospital now :)?

  5. saltypond   April 28, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    I usually drink a glass or two of coke as well as a lot of water. Sometimes
    the extra gas is a bad idea but the caffeine and fizzyness helps to push
    things through. I also lie on my side & massage my stomach. You just have
    to keep moving around until you find a spot that helps. I’ve only been to
    hospital with a blockage once, when my ostomy was very new and I could feel
    it pulling back inside me and it was going flush to my skin, I freaked out
    because I thought it would pop back inside me. Now they tell you that this
    can’t happen, but it can! I’ve got a loop ileo and have had to have surgery
    to get it corrected because it nearly fell back in. My stoma got to under
    12mm, scary!?

    And yes I subbed and liked just cuz you rock.?

    I see a few comments about the horrible NG tubes, so figured I’d share some
    info. I’ve been battling / dealing with Crohn’s for a while now since I was
    diagnosed at age 11. I’m now 34, so I’ve had quite a few experiences. My
    first bit of advice would be; There can be ways around doing certain
    horrible things while hospitalized…or better ways to do them. I had a few
    NG tubes during my younger years, and I despise them. I have recently had a
    few blockages and a few docs insisted on an NG tube. The abdominal pain
    from the blockage sucked but it wasn’t horrible, and the IV pain meds
    helped. Anyway, in one instance I refused the NG tube because I was being
    admitted and was to be scoped the next day. Why get an NG tube to pump
    stuff out when the GI doc can suck it out while doing your scope? There is
    no need to deal with an NG tube unless your pain is unbearable. Have the
    junk sucked out while you’re knocked out and getting scoped. The 2nd
    instance, once again the pain wasn’t horrible so I again refused the NG
    tube. I’ve been around the block enough times to know that I’ll be on a
    liquid diet for a few days, and I will be in the hospital for more than 3
    or 4 days, so I request a PICC line. This way they can give you TPN (‘feed
    you’) through the PICC line instead of the crappy NG tube, and they can use
    your PICC line for all IV meds, procedures, and blood tests…so you don’t
    get poked a ton of times while in the hospital. If you know you’re going to
    be in the hospital for a bit, just opt for a PICC line right off the bat.
    Save yourself a ton of hassle and from multiple IVs and needle pokes. OR
    If the pain is so severe that you can’t wait for the GI scope to suck out
    the backed up junk, and you must have an NG tube, then tell them that you
    want numbed up. There is gel and/or spray that can be used to numb up your
    nostril, the sinus tract, and your throat. It certainly helps! For some
    reason, most doctors don’t tell you about this type of stuff that is
    available. I suppose it’s because they want to hurry and get things done.
    But you have the right to refuse anything while you’re a patient. I don’t
    recommend doing that very much, but I decided to flat out refuse the NG
    tube despite an ER doctor insisting that I have one. And guess what?
    Everything worked out great and I didn’t have to deal with a cruddy NG
    experience. —- I have actually picked up on quite a few things over the
    years. This is just one example. I have a lot of advice or tips that I
    could share to make things a little easier, as well as less painful. Don’t
    be afraid to speak up to docs, ask questions, or make requests. Probably
    most importantly, if you ever aren’t comfortable with the diagnosis and/or
    options given, or something doesn’t seem right, don’t be afraid to tell a
    doctor that you’d like a 2nd opinion…or 3rd opinion. This has saved me a
    few times! I made the mistake of putting doctors up on a pedestal and
    thinking they were always right, up until I turned 23 years old and learned
    the hard way that doctors aren’t always right, and are probably wrong more
    than you’d like to think.?

    You are super cute. :-)?

    Hi Laura! I just wanted to say hi! I had emergency surgery for
    diverticulitis back in September, and felt like I woke up one morning with
    a colostomy. I was (and still am) scared. I had a nurse to help me with my
    wound, but I was scared of changing my ostomy by myself. To be honest, I
    was scared to even look at my stoma. Spell check doesn’t even recognize the
    word, “stoma”. I still don’t either, officially.

    I went searching and found your videos, and seeing you just being cheery
    about the whole thing gave me a lot of hope and confidence. And I got over
    it, and change it like a pro now and (whoop-dee-dee, lucky for me) I’m
    having surgery to reverse the ostomy in late March!

    When I saw you on Tosh.0, I just pointed and sqeeeed! I mad mad love you
    for putting it out there, and making me less afraid, and having a sense of
    humor about all this shit! We are the few that (literally) have shit to get
    off their chests! (Did Tosh actually miss that one? So obvious…)

    At any rate, I just to say thanks for being rad, and please write back, I
    have all sorts of strong opinions.?

  10. msluvdmb   April 28, 2014 at 6:02 pm

    Laura! I have been waiting for your segment on Tosh.0 since you announced
    it a couple of months back. I watched it tonight, and you made me feel so
    proud as someone with UC and a permanent ostomy! You were so funny and
    matter-of-fact about your experiences with Trixy, and I think it went a
    LONG way to help get rid of some of the stigma and ignorance we sometimes
    face. Can’t wait to share around the humor and information :)?

  11. 69midnightdream69   April 28, 2014 at 6:29 pm

    Hi Laura, my name is laura. im 33 and have had “Squeaker” since 99′. i also
    have a ileostomy but i had a proctectomy “barbie butt”. i also just got out
    of the hospital fom having very severe dehydration and a blockage. i also
    waited. i waited 5 days your not alone. sometimes using a heating pad on
    low, you can drink fizzy drinks, very hot showers but not scalding with
    your bag off, and this isnt suggested but when you feel it try forcning the
    food through by throwing up.?

  12. freddie fred   April 28, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    Just saw you on Tosh .O, you looked beautiful and you have a great

  13. Josh Bryan   April 28, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Were you sedated for the NG tube placement??

  14. Edward Torres   April 28, 2014 at 7:27 pm

    Blockages are horrible and so are NG tubes, I’ve only experienced a partial
    blockage due to my stoma being too swollen after surgery. Spending two
    weeks in a hospital after surgery is no fun, and one week was with an NG
    tube, but it was for the better. All we can do is try to stay positive as
    much as we can, no matter how bad things can get sometimes. I’m glad you’re
    doing much better, take care, and try to stay happy as much as you can :-)?

  15. Christian Nevarez   April 28, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    Hey I live in the Chicago area would really love if we could share our
    stories with having uc and having surgery really hope you see this !?

  16. Sofi Luco   April 28, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    hi laura! pardon my english, is not my first language… Are you ok? its
    been more than a month since your last post… kisses!?

  17. Nicholas Rosenbaum   April 28, 2014 at 8:32 pm

    I’m always surprised when you say you have issues with food like broccoli.
    I had a temporary ileostomy made permanent in July of this year when my
    doctors and I decided it was better to remove my colon because my Crohn’s
    had moved into it after they removed part of my small intestine in 2011.
    Short of the diet restrictions I had after surgery, I’ve never been told to
    stay away from certain foods because they could cause a blockage. I’ve had
    broccoli and all kinds of fruits and vegetables even after my first surgery
    and I’ve never had an issue. My main problem with food is that I eat too
    much and then I feel like I wanna go into a coma because of how tired I am.
    Not really a problem though. Thanks for everything you do. I look forward
    to future videos.?

  18. Carlos Medrano   April 28, 2014 at 8:58 pm

    Really shouldn’t wait, but we are tough. Had the same thing happen about a
    month and a half ago. Not a pretty thing to go thru lol. But mainly staying
    hydrated, because in my case not even liquids stayed. ?

  19. Claudia M   April 28, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    Hi, Laura! Hope you better now and…FOREVER!!!! Kisses?

  20. Guillermo Baralt   April 28, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    Laura, it’s a privilege to share this world with you. Keep doing what you
    do! ?

  21. Nicole Powell   April 28, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    Thank you for sharing! I just had ileostomy surgery 3 weeks ago. Fruit and
    veggies were my life before surgery lol! Do you have any tips on what
    fruits and veggies are safe ones for you? I tried a pear and it gave ALOT
    of output and gas. I’m nervous to try stuff but I need my fruits and
    veggies! (: ?

  22. TobiDeLafayette   April 28, 2014 at 11:05 pm

    Been there, done that, had the blockage. Thankfully never been to hospital
    because of it. Now on a pouch, but ate something with mushrooms in it and
    have spent the last two days feeling in pain! I swear I never learn!?

  24. hec eh   April 29, 2014 at 12:38 am

    I have had a ileostomy since 2011 with colon cancer. I am happy I found
    your youtube. I am young as well and you made feel ok. Thank you. I was a
    martial arts instructor, and a nurse in the army and was very very
    depressed with my situation. You made it a little better. Thank you.

    Thanks Laura for putting your story onto YouTube. You’ve been quite an
    inspiration to me!?

  30. Jeri Foreman   April 29, 2014 at 4:33 am

    I figured out very quickly that when I can feel a blockage I lay in bed on
    my side with a pillow directly under my abdomen to create some pressure and
    I switch sides. Last time I got my blockage moving!!!!?

  31. FlipSquad1981   April 29, 2014 at 4:47 am

  32. mRTrAnsAcTiVe   April 29, 2014 at 5:43 am

    Laura, ive had ulcerative colitis for about a year and half. ive had up and
    downs, are downs, are big downs.. i recently found your channel i think it
    is amazing! someone who understands what it’s like. i dont have an ostomy,
    i would have one but i was lucky that one of the medications worked. the
    chance is there still for me. hearing about an ostomy for the first time
    was really scary. im 13, almost 14, and an ostomy would change my life
    life. sports are everything for me (and school <3). im still scared...
    everything is happening so fast. im used to the IV routine and stuff like
    that but it's a lot.. i love what you are doing! i think it's amzing! its
    hard for me to talk about my UC.. but i try to be open. i love u so much
    for what you are doing! pls dont stop! u are my HERO! :D ?
