Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your wife's situation and problem.
CML (chronic myelocytic leukemia) is known to spread in abdominal organs and lymphnodes.
These can cause intestinal obstruction and ulceration.
And these can cause similar symptoms.
So better to first consult doctor and get done clinical examination of abdomen, ultrasound examination of abdomen and CT scan of abdomen if needed.
Better to avoid food or water from mouth until you consult doctor.
Hope I have solved your query.
Wishing good health to your wife. Thanks.
