Blockage or gas??

My abdomen hurts, but it's relieved as soon as I drain the bag or move. It really only hurts badly when I'm lying down. I was worried about having a blockage but my ostomy is doing what it normally does and it does fill the bag. It's not fully liquid like a blockage (I get thick output at night despite having an ileo)It started after I had a soda, I didn't eat anything for 3 hours other than soda.

I'm not sure if I'm having a blockage or just really bad gas?

A soda would likely cause plenty of gas....but it should gradually disperse.
If you think it might be a blockage give your GI a call and get some help soon
