What can cause asceding colon to be partially blocked?

Hi, So in the beginning of February I began experiencing  bloating (I looked pregnant) indigestion, and a lot of burping. My bowel movements were sparse and pencil thin and I felt full and lost my appetite. Gas x did not help. After a couple weeks of not getting better I went to urgent care and right away he did an x ray and found my ascending colon was all backed up due to a possible impacted feces but he wasn't sure. He told me take miralax as if preparing for a colonoscopy. I did and I got a lot out and was real crampy but then my right side starting hurting incredibility bad (I've had two kids drug free and this whole experience has been worse) I went to the ER they took blood and urine samples, did am ultra sound and an xray. Everything was good except the xray showed one spot in my colon with a small partial blockage. He told me to do miralax one more time. The whole week I felt terrible so I went to my DR. who said theres nothing she can do, referred me to a GI specialist and told me to go the ER if I vomit feces. Freaked out I went back to urgent care and he did more bloodwork and ordered a contrast catscan. The catscan said everything was good except my uterus is somewhat prominent and may need an intra vaginal ultrasound. But when he called me he said my results were good and I possibly had a virus. I called on monday to get an appt for the pelvic exam and couldn't get in until April 24th! Tuesday I went to the ER with pain in my right side and light headiness and told them about my history so far, they did the pelvic ultrasound and told me I had an ovarian cyst that ruptured on my right side but to still see a GI specialist, I may have something else going on with my large intestine. I saw the GI yesterday and he seemed unconcerned with the ovarian cyst but was more concerned that I lost weight and scheduled a colonoscopy, but that isn't until April 28th so now I'm still bloated and burping and worried I do eat more now though. Thanks for the input.

I want to add I'm pretty active and my diet isn't bad but I did have a somewhat stressful year with minor depression. I have slight anxiety but since this has happened it has skyrocketed....I am really worried and don't know how I'm going to wait so long for the colonoscopy.
