What does an obstruction feel like anyway???  After having so much diarrhea all I have now is mucus.  I am worried that I may have obstructed but I do hear bowel noises so that is a good sign.  Are there any other things to look for.  My stomach is bloated and sore I believe from the intussuseption.  I am going for an enterography Thursday but wish it were tomorrow. 
 
Thanks
Chris

Chris, if you are having bowel sounds that means you are still moving gas, however, it shouldn't be too noisy either.

Usually when you obstruct, you will get more pain and it generally moves to the mid abdomen region, You will stop having
bm's and there will be no bowel sounds. I also vomited fecal fluid, but that's leaving things a little late.

The reason I mentioned loud bowel sounds, is that, proceeding the above symptoms my bowel got extremely noisy.

I hope this helps and I wish you luck for Thursday.
