Not everyone with a transient intestinal blockage, whether from hernia
, has nausea or diarrhea. And an abdominal wall hernia
could involve fatty tissue rather than intestine, causing symptoms as you describe. Not many liver conditions would cause severe pain, intermittant or steady but especially intermittant. Likewise, pancreatitis pain usually lasts days, not hours. Even though it seems to be getting better, the potential is there for more serious episodes. See your doctor!
