Bowel obstruction

I have ulcerative colitis and think I may have a bowel obstruction. I have been constipated and do not use laxatives but was desperate so took full dose of milk of magnesia and still have not gone on 2 days. Cramping and stonach noises present. Cramping in lower right side. Not sure if I should wait it out or see a doctor. Any advice?

yes you should see a doctor preferably in ER. constipation can cause obstruction and surgery might be required to relieve the same. before it goes to that extent you need to get it checked from the doctor.
