[quote]she hasnot totally regained her appetite, so would that affect the output?[/quote]
you bet. don't eat and your output is going to be minimal...just liquidy goo lol. i wouldn't be too concerned about the cc's-everyone is different, and what you eat will effect you differently. for example if i just eat turkey or deer on one day i'll only put out mayyybe 750cc and it's all thick. if i eat chicken or fish it's all liquid and i'm definitely over 1000cc. if i throw in vegetables or bread then i'm into the 1500cc area. different foods will effect everyone very differently.
as for symtoms of a blockage...cramps that just wouldn't go away, and only liquid or no output. i was paranoid about blockages too at the beginning, but honestly it isn't something to worry about if you're eating properly...i cook all my veggies, the few i have, and limit nuts (1/2 cup at a time) and no popcorn or leafy greens. if she's worried about chunky foods throw it in a blender before eating it :) i make sure to take a couple multivitamins every day too. if your daughter ever wants to ask/chat with another 20something feel free to add me to facebook matthias AT execulink DOT com Being young with this stinks, but really once you figure the ileo out it's no big deal.
