I don't remember after reversal, as I had it reversed when I had surgery for the blockage, then got c diff in the hospital. So had to deal with that horrible uncontrollable diarrhea.
But I believe if you had a blockage, you would be having pain. Are you passing gas? That's a good sign of no blockage. The pain meds don't help either, they cause constipation. About a year ago I had some pain went to hospital and was constipated. Pretty embarrassing, but I was worried after going through a blockage once.
I'm sure if you had a blockage you wouldn't be passing gas and have pretty bad abdominal pain. Plus if you're not eating much you're not going to go much. Problem is we are now so tuned in to our bowels it's constantly on our minds. My gastro once told me the more I stress about it the worse it'll be. It's hard tho, I'm always so aware of my bottom.
Good luck, hopefully things will start moving soon.
