Re: Uh.. what do I do?

It's not draining at all? Even slowly? That's odd... I wonder what's in there?

My friend did a toiletry-ectomy last year. Her daughter flushed the entire contents of the shower down the toilet, including the travel sized bottles of shampoos. But, (fortunately you are renting) they had to pay $4000 to re-do the pipes under the house. They had some plumber in to send a camera through the pipes to find out what was blocking it... it was two my little ponies, and a small bottle of Avon Bubble Bath.

OP can you actually replace it and have the landlord reimburse you through deduction of rent? I'm sure this qualifies for emergency repair.

Taking the toilet off isn't a hard thing to do but if your lease says that you can't do repairs I would hold off on it if you can.

Similar thing here, except it was a couple wipes that had accidentally been flushed and were caught way down the end side of the toilet and kept sealing things off.

good luck, mama! I can imagine you are trying very hard not to have to pee!
