Hi Kelly

It does sound to me like you could have a bowel obstruction or are on your way to having one. I know its a yukky subject but what color is the stool and are you vomiting? My friend at work had emergency surgery after having the same symtoms plus vomiting and a greenish looking stool. Are the cramps all over or are they in specific areas? Three days is a long time to have your symtoms so I think it would be a good time to at least call your advice

nurse or your doctor and tell them about the symptoms you are having. Don't wait, call now. I'm not a doctor but from what you are describing, you really shouldn't wait any longer to see if this passes.

I hope you feel better soon!
