My mum has primary peritoneal cancer and it has caused bowel obstructions so the doctors put her bowel to sleep to try and clear the obstructions but now it won't wake up again. They cannot do chemotherapy before it shows any sign of life and time is running out very quickly. We have only a matter of a week to wake it up again and get her eating again. If anyone knows any way, alternative or anything to wake up a bowel please please post now.
