With large bowel obstruction what are my treatment options?

Bowel obstruction

Bowel_obstruction
Bowel obstruction can be partial or complete, due to problems outside the gut or problems within the gut, functional or space-occupying, acute or resolving, small bowel or large bowel. When obstruction is complete, surgery is needed. If due to infection, IBD,or disease external to the GI tract, treatment may be medical &/or even just observational with supportive care until the gut "wakes up."

Several

Abdominal colicky pain, abdominal distention, no stool or flatus, nausea, fever, vomitting. Initially, they need to confirm obstruction with an exam and an Xray or CT scan. THen initially will be treated with complete bowel rest(nothing by mouth) and IV fluids, with or without a nasogastric tube. IF it doesn't resolve in 24 hours surgery may be necessary. Good luck.

Dr. ROBERT Uyeda answered:

What occurs if you have a small bowel obstruction and u dont take any medical treatment for it?

If it turns

Bowel_obstruction
into a complete SBO, it can strangulate and cause peritonitis and death. Other complications such as aspiration of vomitus and electrolyte abnormalities that cause heart problems are also possible. As you can see, it is best to have medical treatment for any SBO.

What is the best treatment for small bowel obstruction?

See doctor

Bowel_obstruction
If you have an acute small bowel obstruction you should get emergency care. There are several possibilities and you will likely need to be hospitalized for at least short period of time since you will likely not be able to eat or drink until issue is resolved.

Constipation

Constipation can cause partial obstruction. The partial obstruction could lead to easy fullness and worsen reflux. Increased activity, fluids, fiber, stool softners and laxatives are main treatment. Evaluation to rule out mechanical obstruction including colonoscopy may be indicated in some cases

Explain the condition called a bowel obstruction.?

Blockage

A bowel obstruction may be from the large (colon) or small intestine. Blockages generally are from extrinsic (outside forces pushing the bowel closed at a point) or intrinsic (something inside the bowel blocking it). They may be partial allowing some liquids to pass or total blockages. Totals are surgical emergencies and need immediate attention. COmmoon causes are tumors, adhesions, volvulus...

is there an alternative to percocet for bowel obstruction pain?

Pain Treatment

Intestine
A true bowel obstruction is potentially a medical emergency and needs to evaluated as such. Opioids can slow down your gastrointestinal motility and may actually worsen a known obstruction.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

What can I do to treat bowel obstruction?

No home remedies

Intestine
Bowel obstructions are potentially life-threatening emergencies that require urgent hospital evaluation and management: first, to diagnose the exact cause, and then to come up with a treatment plan. Some may simply require bowel rest, IV fluids, tube decompression of the stomach, and "time"; others will require emergency surgery.
