Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your sister. Can i ask does she have pain on pressing down on the stomach? Also is she able to pass flatus (gas) via the rectum or not? Any vomiting or fever?

Thanks for the additional information,

Actually, if she has pain in pressing down on the abdomen that means that she could have intestinal obstruction. This is a blockage in the intestine which is so severe that it is causing the intestines to swell up and cause the pain etc. If this is not resolved quickly then the swollen intestines can rupture leading to a serious condition. She needs to be IMMEDIATELY taken to the ER where they can do a x-ray of the abdomen and if necessary a CT scan as well. Once that is done they can decompress the intestines.

But it is EXTREMELY important that you DO NOT DELAY and take her to the ER.

The swollen abdomen and pain/tenderness is an indication of intestinal obstruction which can be SERIOUS if not dealt with immediately.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
