Strictures

image description
A stricture is a narrowing in the intestine caused by either severe inflammation and swelling, scar tissue, or both. 


Strictures can lead to:
  • abdominal pain (especially after eating)
  • distention
  • obstructions (no food or stool passes through the stricture, which may cause severe pain, bloating, nausea and vomiting)
