It sounds like you have an obstruction of sorts...grape juice is a favorite for many but I prefer ginger ale or a strong coffee to move things through. If the pain gets worse go to the hospital.
Don't mess around with an sbo (even partial)...if you have pain/vomiting get yourself to the hospital. Not having insurance is an issue and I understand about
the new job but YOUR health is too important PLEASE take care of yourself!!
Keep us posted on how things are!
