Complications could include:
Intestinal obstruction is the partial or complete blockage of the intestines at one or more locations. Obstructions prevent liquids and solids from passing through the digestive tract.
If your small or large intestine becomes blocked, fluid and digested food cannot move through. This can cause bloating, stomach cramps, and burping.
A nutritional deficiency occurs when the body doesn't absorb the necessary amount of a nutrient. Symptoms include a pale complexion, fatigue, hair loss, and depression.
