My mother in law had a blocked bowel due to adhesions. She is 77 so did not think she would survive the op but she did. They rmoved part of the boel and joined it. It took a long time to recover in ITU but made good recovery she was sent to a community hospital to recuperate. whilst there she complained of bad stomach pains and was retching but not sick, they said it was from the operation and released her to go home. Afetr less than a week her pains become worse we called the doc out and asked her if she wanted to go back to hospital she said no, he said he had to respect her wishes she then kept going to sleep not drinking or eating we insisted she was taken to hospital which they did. She was diagnosied in hospital of a bowel rupture and had to go through the same op again. This time its taken her a long time to recover and is now back at the community hospital, she isnt drinking much or eating as she says she just has no appetite and she still has the retching all the time . We feel they are missing something and told them they say there is nothing medical wrong with her but we know she is not well can anyone advise us please before we lose her
