Bramble had a really bad bout of stasis, actually he has had a few. He has never been kept in at the vets but we are quite used to managing him at home because he frequently has tummy troubles. I think the worst was three days without eating independently at all! You just need to keep going with the syringe feeding and meds, did they give you a motility drug too? Bramble sometimes has to go to the vet daily for this when he is really bad but other times we give him it at home orally. Monitor the litter tray and try to keep him moving if you can. Bramble likes to lie in the litter tray when he is unwell (that’s basically how we know he is unwell because he never does that any other time) so we just go over every so often and pick him up (he lets us when he is sick) and carry him to the other side of the room, he wants back in the tray so he has to hop over – it keeps him moving which is good for getting the guts going again, especially if there is some gas in there.
