Hello Good evening,
You might be suffered from SAIO (Subacute intestinal obstruction).
By the time it can convert into Acute Intestinal Obstruction. You should not be careless about it and if your symptoms deteriorate then please follows:

X-ray FPA in erect position to r/o any intestinal obstruction
X-ray Chest PA in erect position to see gas under diaphragm to r/o any perforation
Blood investigations to support if peritonitis
CECT abdomen to clear more all the things
Most important, to consult with general/gastro surgeon to identify any serious damage.

If symptoms are not so severe then you can use more laxatives with walking and PC enema too.
