Chasblah~I know what you are talking about
...it has happened to me when I eat WAY TOO MUCH fiber
It should get better once it is through your system...I wouldn't necessarily call it a blockage, because you're having output, but it is taking longer and your stoma has to work to push it through. Try the grape juice and see...I usually up my fluids to get things moving and it's okay. Leaks are possible when it retracts like that
but it should come back once the fiber is through.
My stoma is usually about
3/4-1" long...is yours a good size normally?
This doesn't happen often, too me, but I won't give up my fiber so I just find a happy compromise! Do you know what food caused it? Next time try eating half the amount and see if that helps.
