I am in the same boat as last night, I went to bingo, and I had the cramping again in the upper part of my stomach, this is the first time my stomach started to swell up. that worries me even more, but I came home and took the senekot, and hope it works, I have not gone since Fruday, except the small bit of stoll which was loose. I hope I sleep good tonight, I did last night thank goodness, I told my husband again tonight I am scrared this time, like I said this is the first time I have had my stomach swell.

I hope you are okay, TOni
