Bowel Obstruction

Bowel obstruction is a blockage that prevents food or liquid from passing through your small intestine or large intestine (colon).

Bowel Obstruction Dr Golani Surgery Sydney Surgeon

Causes

  • Tumours, hernias, twisting of the intestines (volvulus)
  • Faecal impaction
  • Medications, surgery, or nervous system disorders

Treatment Options

  1. Medical Management: Includes IV fluids, medications for symptoms relief, and bowel rest.
  2. Surgery: Required for severe cases where medical management is ineffective.

Surgery for Bowel Obstruction

In some cases, a Bowel Resection may be required for bowel obstruction. This involves removing a portion of the intestine.

Recovery and Prevention

Post-surgery recovery involves diet modification and gradual return to normal activities. Prevention focuses on a balanced diet with sufficient fibre and fluids.
