I am not doing well,either. Yesterday I had a colonoscopy and today I feel worse. The gastro had said there was no obstruction, but I have had a bad day and night. I'm wondering if it's adhesions or motility. I am terrified of ending up obstructed, and I've heard about the n.g. tube and etc. Almost unable to pass gas,etc. And it's the weekend. I don't eat much because it feels as if nothing will pass., and I'm losing weight. What did they do to relieve your obstruction, and how was it diagnosed? I've had prior surgeries, but none for obstruction.Yet. Millie
