In brief: Yes, but...

A partial obstruction of the digestive tract could result in decreased appetite, but there are many things that can cause decreased appetite, so I would not jump to that conclusion unless tests have been done that would verify that.
If you have a prolonged decreased appetite, especially if it results in excessive unintended weight loss, see your doctor. Good luck.
