Will Coke or Diet Coke help clear up partial bowel blockage?

Right now I feel like I have partial bowel blockage.  I have been hospitalized for full bowel blockage before so I know what that's like.  The reason I call this "partial" is my stomach didn't feel so great last night but I didn't wind up vomiting or feeling like I was going to die at the same time too, like I did the last time I got blockage, most probably from downing too much Metamucil aka psyllium husk. Right now I don't feel bad but I want to keep away from solid food for a day or two.  I noticed online though that Coke might work well at relieving my blockage https://www.livescience.com/26...omach-blockages.html  Has anybody here tried it before?  I'd rather use Diet Coke since I don't want any sugar to wind up in my j-pouch which might obstruct it a little.
