I have quite frequent blockages, BUT I have spoken to my doctors at length about them, I have gone to the hospital many times, and I know the warning signs of trouble. I have all the pain medications, and anti nausea meds, including suppository, at home, so my doctor is OK with me staying at home AS LONG AS, I keep hydrated, and am not running a fever. At the first sign of trouble, I head to the hospital. My blockages usually resolve themselves in 12 - 24 hours and I keep to a liquid diet for a few days there after to make sure things are OK. Mine are from adhesion, or so they think, not from active disease at this point, so it is just a matter of the bowel twisting around and freeing itself. I can not recommend this course to you without you consulting your doctor. I have a very high tolerance for pain and can deal with this at home, however, it can be dangerous. I would also, never do this if I didn't have family in the house with me at all time, in case of an emergency.
If you do start to feel 'off' you can try to go straight to liquids and see if that helps, if you have steroids, you could try a short burst, but once again I would talk to your doctor first.
