Bowel Obstruction With Liver Donation Surgery

For people who have had a major abdominal surgery, such as liver donation, there is a small chance of developing a bowel obstruction. A bowel obstruction is a type of blockage in the intestines that can require surgery in order to be treated. Bowel obstructions don't necessarily develop immediately after the surgery. They can happen at any point during your life, even several years later.
 
With this and other major abdominal surgeries, the risk of developing a bowel obstruction at some point in your life is about 3 out of 100.
