I doubt a regular xray would be able to pick up a small obstruction. Bowels are usually only visualized on xray when they have formed/hard stool in them. I would think it would take a CT with contrast to properly visualize the problem.
C2, sorry you aren't feeling well! Why do these things always happen on weekends?
I am not an xray tech so am just winging it. If I am wrong, please feel free to correct me.
