Q

What causes dead bowel syndrome?

I have been diagnosed with this dead bowel syndrome condition and told I need surgery to remove the lower intestine (or part of it?). Is there an alternative treatment? What is the treatment?

If you have true “dead bowel syndrome” which is infarcted bowel, there is no other treatment besides surgery. This should be discussed with your doctor.
