Defination Intestinal obstruction is a blockage that keeps food or liquid from passing through your small intestine or large intestine (colon). Intestinal obstruction may be caused by fibrous bands of tissue in the abdomen (adhesions) which form after surgery, inflamed or infected pouches in your intestine (diverticulitis), hernias and tumors. Symptoms Signs and symptoms of intestinal obstruction include:Crampy abdominal pain that comes and goes, Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea, Constipation, Inability to have a bowel movement or pass gas, Swelling of the abdomen (distention)
Digested food particles must travel through 25 feet of intestines or more before new wastes enter your body. These wastes are constantly in motion. However intestinal obstruction can put a stop to this. An intestinal obstruction occurs when your small or large intestine is blocked. The blockage, partial or total, prevents the passage of fluid or digested food.
Some of the symptoms may depend on the location of the obstruction. For example, vomiting is an early sign of small intestine obstruction. This tends to happen after a longer amount of time if you have an obstruction in the large intestine. A partial obstruction can result in diarrhea, while a complete obstruction results in constipation.Intestinal obstruction may also cause a high fever if a portion of the intestinal wall has ruptured.
