I take it by "bowel obstruction" you mean constipation ? There are a number of possibiliites; How long have you had the "pain going through your stomack" Have you felt nauseous? Any fever or chills? Have you had any problems with constipation or any medical conditions related to you belly ?

Ok, I c. Most likely you pain is secondary to the obstruction/adhesions. Since it has been ongoing for over 2 days, you should have it checked. With this history and the type of pain you describe, there are a number of scenarios that include "acute abdomen" which might require immediate attention.
