Yeah, that's typical for hospital food in Taiwan.

I'm glad it is all sorted now. What a strange turn of events.


Yes, really weird ... stealthy almost

Thanks for the report! Sounds like Zheng Xin/Cheng Hsing whatever way it's spelt is a hospital to consider.

Take care, you. And always question and research, BP.

Helluva story, BP. I hope you're adapting well to your new intestine length - or in general just adapting well. :thumbsup:

Funny thing about falls. About 30 years ago my aunt was walking up the back stoop into my parents' home when she lost her balance and fell backward. She fell hard on her butt and rolled backward teapot over tea kettle until she landed, about one meter down in vertical distance and six steps in staircase distance, plopped on her back into my parents' backyard. She was shook up, very shook up. She cried. Within ten minutes, though, she shrugged things off and was laughing with my mother (her very close sister) over her fall. I know because I was carrying a bag of groceries and only about sixty seconds behind her and my mother.

A week or so later she came down with a fever. A week or so after that her doctors finally figured out that she had peritonitis, so advanced that she displayed some abdominal edema and was admitted to hospital. Within an hour she was in ICU. Within 48 hours she was dead (my mother, who was as close as only sisters can be, was utterly, completely devastated).

Falls can be very bad news. I'm glad yours has a happy ending. :thumbsup:

Hello BP,
I'm sorry to hear what happened to you. But this is strange to me that a severe constipation, or even mechanic ileus followed only after a falling accident. And it's awfully weird that the doctors in Sanxia treated patients so carelessly. Most of the doctors here in Taiwan won't let the patients leave the hospital easily after coming back again and again for more than 2 times.

Well, my point is that I wonder if you have told the doctor that you had slipped and fell on protruding rocks before this event? Or has the doctor explained to you the reason of mechanical bowel obstruction, or mechanical ileus? My wild guess is that if the falling accident is related to this event, an injury to the nerves around sacral area should be taken into consideration. The sacrum is right in the middle of the buttocks and there're nerves running around this area. A severe falling might cause damage to the nerves and render various neurological problems. Constipation might be one of them. So keep asking the doctor why and how this happens if the answer didn't satify you. Good luck.

I had pain in this spot (buttocks) for almost 10 days, and to my surprise there were no visible outward signs, I asked my wife if she saw a hemorrhage there but no she said. Anyways, all's well now.
