My Grandfather is in his late 70's and has been hospitalized for the third time in the last several months for bowel obstruction. He was admitted again Tuesday evening and the doctors are uncertain of what to do. They previously surgically straightened out parts of the intestines to keep him alive, but obviously the problem is recurring.
He had a triple bypass surgery around 1997 and a pacemaker was put in. He has also had several hernia surgeries. But he has much fight in him. He maintains a positive outlook, but he has become very drained over the last several years.
There must be something acupuncture/herbs may be able to do to help with the bowel adhesions. Doctors say he should make sure his food is very well chewed and he drinks plenty of water, but even liquids cause clogs and severe pain. Any suggestions to help? Thank you.
