I recently had a blockage in my bowel and spent 10 days in hospital on steroids and starting humira in the hopes that surgery could be averted for now. I was advised to stick to a low residue diet once home, the steroids are being reduced week by week and the plan is that I will probably need my whole colon removed at some point (my Crohn's is apparently advanced). My problem is that I have such terrible trapped wind. It builds and builds and 'pops' inside my tummy but I seem unable to release it until about four hours of pain has been endured. Eventually I release it and experience relief for 15 minutes or so before it all starts again. It is pressing badly on my bladder too, so I feel an urgent need for the loo almost constantly. I am afraid to eat. Has anyone had similar experience? Any advice? I try eating small amounts, have cut out all 'wind' producing food. Grateful for any help.
