How long have you had your ileostomy? Are you taking any imodium or lomotil to slow things down?
Everyone is different. For me, a partial blockage means that I still have some, but very little, output and mostly real watery. No fever, NO nausea, distended abdomen, and some serious cramp-like pain sometimes radiating down the inside of my thighs (probably nerves involved). Usually just horrible crampy pain in the lower abd. and under the stoma. If I can tolerate it, I take a hot shower, use my "bed buddy" that you heat in the microwave, and drink as much as I can (so long as I still have some output). If output ceases - go to the ER. If in question, go to the ER. That is what my GI dr has told me.... so far, no ER. But I do always have some pain meds handy just in case I need them. But, beware, pain meds can slow the process down a bit as well. Exercise is also recommended - if you can tolerate it. I tend to lay down in bed and just roll from one side to the other, walk as I can. There was an earlier post where someone recommended Welch's grape juice or apple juice - makes sense to me. I'll remember that one.
Hope that helps... I'm sure others have their own stories. Like I said, everyone is different. Talk to your doctor. He's the specialist.... we just live with it!!! :)
