    Just joined -- four year permanent ileostomate and had a nonmechanical ileus (bowel stopped moving) and no GI doc at my local hospital. Finding it hard to have energy 2 days later. Does anyone have experience with ileus in an otherwise healthy person? It just came out of the blue....Should I get tested for c.diff?
