Guess What This Is?
This is a 31 year old man who had a total colectomy for Crohns disease and had a ileostomy bag. He came in to the emergency room one night with complete intestinal obstruction. All of the round and oblong shadows are undissolved capsules and tablets ( Hundreds Of Them ) They operated that night to remove them and he made a nice recovery. It makes the point that bioavailability is everything!
Simply put, these are fragmented capsules and tablets "stuck" in his lower GI tract.
