I went into the ER yesterday because I had very sharp shooting pains in my abdomen. I had been constipated and uncomfortable for about 3 days already but I could hardly sleep from this sudden pain yesterday. At the er they thought it was appendicitis but from the CT scan they said I was severely blocked and had several ulcers but I have so much blockage it's hard to see anything. I had taken milk of magnesia the day before and I had been using the bathroom all day but the pain has only worsened. They sent me home and will have a dr follow up tomorrow but I am not sure what to do. I have to work tomorrow morning and I am in a lot of pain. It hurts to eat, take deep breathes. I don't want to go back to the ER just for constipation but I am in a lot of pain and kind of worried.
Any suggestions? Also, the drs have prescribed colace, an anti nausea pill, and pepcid. But my pain is strong and I am very uncomfortable.

Did they suggest an enema or offer to disimpact you?? If you in so much pain that you can't function go back I'd say.
