Did a doctor tell you about an obstruction?
He would give very specific instructions.
Usually you would go into the hospital unless it was due to severe constipation which could be taken care of at home.
Think about it. The bowel could have a partial of full obstruction.
You should have pain. I don't get that part.
If full, no air or gas is passing so you would have severe
pain,nausea,vomiting,distended. They usually decompress stomach with a nasogastric tube. They need to find cause which may very well need surgery.
A partial bowel - some pain, either no bm or thin bm, nausea/vomiting.
Hi,Researchers reviewed 10 years' worth of detailed cases on 46 patients with a condition called gastric phytobezoar — a stomach blockage — who were treated with so-called Coca-Cola dissolution therapy.
Phytobezoars, the most common type of stomach blockage, are composed of indigestible food fibers from fruits and vegetables including celery, pumpkin, prunes, raisins, leeks, beets, persimmons, and sunflower seed shells. Unless they are successfully removed or unblocked, they can lead to symptoms like nausea, vomiting, gastric obstruction, perforation, abdominal pain, and bleeding.
These blockages occur most often in people with risk factors that include decreased stomach size or reduced stomach acid production, having had gastric surgery that resulted in delayed stomach emptying, or having diabetes or late-stage kidney disease.
Researchers at the medical school of Athens University found that of the 46 patients who were given Coca-Cola to treat the blockage, the treatment cleared the blockage in half, 19 patients needed additional non-invasive treatment, and four needed full surgery.
Coca-Cola was administered in a few different ways:
Some patients drank the beverage in daily amounts from 500 milliliters to 3,000 milliliters for up to six weeks.
Some had gastric lavage, or therapeutic irrigation of the digestive tract, which was done using 3,000 milliliters of Coca-Cola over a 24-hour time period.
Eight patients had combinations of Coca-Cola treatment — drinking, injection, and irrigation.
The researchers found Coca-Cola was successful as a treatment for phytobezoar resolution in 91.3 percent of the cases, according to a study published in the journal Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics.
The problem with the coke "study" is that it looked at treatment for a phytobezoars. Majority of SBO's are due to adhesions/strictures, not phytobezoars. Pouring coke down a hose that's kinked isn't going to unkink the hose. A clogged drain maybe, but not a kinked hose. That's what most SBOs are.
