Clear liquid diet can cause reduction in the volume and frequency of stools. In full bowel obstruction there is bloating, pain.no gas or stool coming out and nausea, vomiting, In partial the symptoms vary. Pl stay in care of doc treating you and any symptoms you worry about - let them check you. I hope you do well
