Over the weekend, my left side was in so much pain--felt stuck. The output was thick and then watery but never stopped. Now, it's all foamy. If I lied on my right side, I could push a lump along and squeeze my left side til things felt better. Things seemed to get better but today I just plain hurt and have some cramping in the center of my abdomen. We've been really busy and I'm trying to rest and stay hydrated. Could I just be dehydrated AGAIN? If it was a partial blockage/obstruction, when will it stop hurting me?

If you had a 'lump' that you could feel, it probably was a partial obstruction, but it sounds like things were moving enough? The pain is normal with them (at least for me) and a heating pad tends to help...I also drink a lot of coffee when I suspect one...that will usually flush out the culprit before it becomes an issue.

I hope you are feeling better now...

The pain lingers for a few days after a blockage clears itself up, the coffee suggestion has also helped me a bit...and moving around as much as you can stand....good luck!
