Ileus - intestinal paralysis - arises in such an anorexic and ill patient. Whatever ingesta and gastrointestinal secretions were present 10 days ago and collected in her GI tract over the past 10 days, respectively, eventually would pass as diarrhea. This often is seen as an agonal (near or at death) event. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
