The idea of bowel obstruction causing these symptoms is utter nonsense.
I am not sure why the ER docs would say such a thing, but an actual obstruction would require surgery and admission to the hospital.
In addition, the sympotms are not from constipation.
And missing a bowel movement for one day is not impressive.
The recurrent dizziness is concerning, and a transient ischemic attack can be responsible.
This can still be a heart problem, spot testing does not rule that out.
I urge you, take him back in: you do not have a good explanation, these are serious symptoms, and he should be in observation until this is figured out.
I am a double board certified US doctor.
I have over 20 years of experience with this type of patient.
