She... what? Threw up her feces? I didn't even know that was possible. Confused

Her doctors and/or surgeons would know much better than we would. Ask them, or get a second opinion.

how can feces go through the mouth? feces are in the intestines so they would have to go up the intestines, then cross the stomach, then cross the esophagus..how is that possible??

Probably it got backed up into the stomach, which caused a ph unbalance.

It is possible. I know that babies with pyloric stenosis can do that. I don't know about adults but if her insides are mixed up then it's possible.

Vomiting feces is a sign of a bowel obstruction in the large intestine. For this to occur, there has to be something VERY WRONG with you. Fecal vomiting is most definitely a MEDICAL EMERGENCY that requires IMMEDIATE ATTENTION!

So I read it is possible..

"Pretty much the only thing that can cause things to go in reverse here is an obstruction in the bowel. An obstruction can either cause things to slowly pile up -- leaving a foot in the door, so to speak -- or can trigger a spasm in the muscles of the intestinal walls that forces the contents of the bowels back into the stomach.

Where things really start to get tricky is the underlying cause of the obstruction to begin with. It could be caused by a tumor, a twist or crimp in a section of the intestine, or compacted fecal matter from prolonged constipation that has caused a backup all the way to the opening of the stomach. "


I read it is serious issue and if not treated inmediatly you can die. I would think she will have to be closely monitored after getting the intestine unblocked. She will need to be on serious treatment against constipation. I read you can't go not pooping for more than 4 days.

I'd like to add that this is not true. I've always been a once-a-week, twice-if-I'm lucky girl. I routinely go longer than four days between poos. I'm not saying I hold it in on purpose - it's just how my body works.
