Whereabouts is the partial obstruction ? Is it real high up in the colon or more towards the sigmoid colon and rectum ?
What have you tried so far to get unobstructed ? citrate of magnesia ? Miralax ? castor or mineral oil ? What did or has the doctor told you to do ? I have heard that olive oil helps to clean you out when severley constipated .
