Has your dr seen this?  My stomach would get distended but it would pass when my stools would move through.  I had to drink prune juice to get them to move.

are you running a fever? Has your stomach just changed shape, or is it one spot that is swollen/harder than the rest of your stomach?

If it is bothersome, call your doc, it is always better to be safe than sorry!
