Thank you for the query.
Lack of gas and stool passing clearly indicates complete bowels obstruction. If the problem has appeared before he was admitted to the hospital, colon cancer, abdominal adhesions
or hernia could cause it. If the problem has started after admittance, paralysis of intestines due to other diseases (like sepsis due to intestine perforation, urinary tract infection
) can be the reason.
Please ask doctor
to make a simple abdominal X-ray
and if the obstruction will be confirmed, ask them for surgical consult.
Hope this will help.
