Medical management

Inoperable intestinal obstruction can be managed medically. This may permit the patient to be cared for at home. The patient can eat and drink small amounts. Treatment approaches vary dependent upon whether subacute obstruction or complete obstruction is present. The aim is to remove the debilitating feeling of nausea and to reduce the frequency of vomiting to a level acceptable to the patient.

The symptoms to be palliated are nausea, vomiting, pain, and constipation. Oral medication is poorly absorbed in gastro-intestinal obstruction and the subcutaneous or rectal route should be used.
