if you have right lower quadrant pain (mild but constant) and nausea for several days, could that be an obstruction that is happening progressively? i know obstruction can be partial, but i'm wondering whether it's binary - either you have it (partial obstruction) or you don't, or whether there are degrees.  are there any other explanations for these symptoms? can they be caused by inflammation alone?

It could be a partial obstruction caused by inflammation, scar tissue, both inflammation & scar tissue, or because something got stuck there. You should see your doctor immediately or go to the ER.
