Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like. With the stomach pain and the lack of any movements you do need to get back to the hospital for an exam and either abdominal x-rays or a ct of the abdomen. A rare complication of endocscopy can be a tear or perforation of the colon and that needs to be looked for in a case like yours
