My fiance had stomach cramps and profuse vomiting that smells like feces, and he says looks and tastes the same. He doesn't have ins. What can we do?

In brief: Not a good sign

Generally, vomit that is feculant (smells like stool), is indicative of a distal bowel obstruction.
You must take him to the hospital where further testing will be done to rule this in or out. Seriously.

In brief: Go to emergency room

Any time there is concern for feces in the vomitus, a small bowel obstruction needs to be ruled out.
An abdominal x-ray is required. Rehydration and medication for nausea is also available.
