In brief: Small bowel ostruct

Small bowel obstruction can be complete in which nothing will pass into colon or partial in which liquid may get to colon.
Complete obstructions usually need surgery a partial obstruction can usually be managed nonoperatively. Ut if the obstruction is high grade and symptons are recurring(as in this case) surgery is sometimes required to release the obstruction.
