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.
Treatment involves placing a tube through the nose into the stomach or intestine. This is to help relieve abdominal swelling (distention) and vomiting.

It may also be needed if there are signs of tissue death.
