Re: what is a twisted bowel

Do a google search for "Sigmoid Volvulus" and you will find a good explanation. Simply put, it's similar to when a hose pipe twists around leaving a loop at the middle. The tighter the twist, the less matter can flow through the whole pipe. Results ~ an obstruction of the bowel and enlargement of the loop with associated pain etc.
Hope that helps.
