Thanks Scott. I am drinking and peeing copious amounts; very clear. I also pass stool and gas; not as much as usual. Behind old stoma is very tender and fluttery. Very bloated progressively through the day. My understanding from seeing my surgeon today is that up to 10 days would still be within the normal realm for the obstruction to clear. He advised me that if BM's cease, get to emerg. He scoped my pouch as well and said it looked good. Fingers crossed this clears. Blanded out my diet and lots of clear fluids, but small amounts at a time or more discomfort. Thank you for your comments. Appreciated.
