Bowel Perforations (also known as a perforated bowel) is a condition in which a hole in the bowel opens, allowing the bowel’s content to spill into the abdominal cavity. If left untreated, bowel perforations can lead to sepsis, a potentially fatal blood infection. In virtually all cases, surgery is required to wash out the abdomen before the perforated bowel can be repaired. If the perforation affects the bowel and other parts of the intestine, a colostomy may be required.

Bowel Perforation symptoms include:

  • High fever
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain (especially when one moves)
  • Intense vomiting
