Abdominal pain: There are several causes of abdominal pain. If it is constant, severe, associated with fever or vomiting then immediate attention is necessary. Clay colored stools can also be associated with liver and gallbladder issues. Since it's been over a week then i would consider further testing with blood tests and abdominal imaging.

See your doc again: This could be due to so many things but if your doctor ask you to wait , then you want to follow his instruction but if this becomes worse, may need to see your doctor again.
