I have never had an obstruction, I am very fearfuk, like you, of that. I was told that I was having partial obstructions, but I have never and am very fearful of what you are.

We will get through this together, I took another shower in case I have my husband take me to ER, but I am feeling better right now, and am going to go to bed, and read, and try to relax. I did not eat anything today, just sipping on coke, but I took my medications, and I am fine, so I know I am not obstructed.

Take care, and try to keep in touch!
