Hi all... I'm getting a little nervous about this. This is my third day with no real bm. I've passed plenty of mucus but no stool. I am passing gas at times, though, so does that mean I do not have an obstruction? I've taken MOM two days in a row. I guess I don't really know what to do right now. I do have a fever -- generally below 100 (99.6-ish) for the past few weeks, but last night it got to 102.0. I did start Cipro this morning. I had been on Flagyl but cannot stand the taste and nausea it brought.
Does anyone have any advice? I guess the fear seems to alter my life so often... I just want to get well... Thanks.
