Can This Be Bowel Obstruction If Pain Years After Repeated C Sections

Very, very rare: A true bowel obstruction is a mechanical blockage of the small intestine, usually due to scar tissue (adhesions) from prior surgery.

Anything that creates a blockage of the intestinal tract. You may think of the intestinal tract (stomach, small bowel, large bowel) as somewhat akin to a garden hose. If you kink the garden hose, or twist it, or block it inside, you have created an "obstruction". Most obstructions are a results of previous surgery and most of these ...Read more
