What are dilated bowels?
I went in to the ER yesterday for severe abdominal cramps lasting three days -- I went to a Primary Health doctor first, who said it was most likely my appendix. The doctor at the ER had xrays taken of my abdomen and said that several loops of my bowel were dilated, but didn't really explain what that means or possible complications, and google isn't providing much in the way of answers, either.

So, dilated bowels! What does that mean, and what are possible future complications?

I guess asking the doctor what he meant was out of the question....

Dilated bowels more than likely means that the circumference of your intestines (small and/or large) is increased. I would assume it would cause cramping since I would also assume that means it would be taking up more space in your abdomen. This might be temporary or you might have a condition. I would wait for your doctor to tell you this, assuming 'going to see your primary as a follow up soon.

Depending on where this is happening in your abdomen it might make you have to urinate more often if it is pressing into your bladder. You might have some minor stool and dietary issues as well.

It sounds like he sent you home. I'm curious if he gave you and medications or instructions. It doesn't sound very threatening and I wouldn't think a condition would randomly set in.

I would just wait it out to see what your doctor tells you,
