Susan, this is a message I sent to the group just last month about Metamusil. Ask me if you have more questions. If you suspect part.obstruction it would be best to go for an abdominal series x-ray in an acute case.

To confirm that you are not totally blocked and have a "paper trail". I did have Diarrhea when the blockage cleared. That's from about 2liters/ day of bile salts and enzymes which are still produced by your GI system and has trouble getting through.It will be like a waterfall. You will have pain, because the gut muscles want to propell the gut contents forward. Don't eat anything in an acute state. But try to drink water to not get dehydrated. With meds you have to see that symptomes don't get masked. Talk to your doc. Take care Eva
