Patient :I have a partial small bowel obstruction(originally caused by a baby with an interseception resulting in a ring of scar tissue. is there any way to desolve scar tissue so i can stop living on liquid
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Read and understood your history.
You have got a partial small bowel obstruction due to a stricture as we call it - ring of scar tissue - due to intussusception.
I can understand your intention to get the dissolution of the scar tissue so that you can stop living on liquid.
This indicates that the obstruction is caused by solid food and looks to be of long duration.
I also hope that Enteroclysis / barium studies have been performed.
In spite of the advances in medical sciences, there are Medicine which can really help this situation.
The only sure-shot treatment is the Surgical correction and this can solve the problem life-long.
The success of the surgery depends upon the good pre-operative preparation of the bowel and your general condition.
This includes a normal hemoglobin and serum proteins- particularly the albumin and correction of any deficiency of multivitamins and trace elements ( you get in the multivitamin preparations).
I Hope this answers your query.
I can understand this is a bit straight forward answer but the facts have to be accepted and the correction done As early as possible to avoid the symptoms and complications of stricture of the small intestine.
