In brief: U Can't Do It Alone

Small bowel obstructions (sbo) require in-patient care to fully evaluate and rx.
This includes reversal of the inevitable dehydration, emptying the stomach with an ng tube, and monitoring one's overall well-being to determine if surgery is necessary. Most sbos are secondary to adhesions from prior surgery; thankfully, this resolves with above measures 2/3 of the time.
