    What can be done when air is left in intestines after surgery, previous air also from penis.

    My father just had left kidney removed on December 04th. However, he has some major complications. He has not been able to have bowel movement, not able to eat, but is gettng tpn. Doctor ordered KUB but have not gotten results. I took a look at xray-to me it showed air in his intestines. What procedure will they use to get rid of this air, which has him in soooo much pain. Thank you.

    If it's actually in his intestines and not his abdominal cavity, he could try something simple like stretching exercises or even a basic yoga routine (perhaps under the instruction of a qualified teacher). The bending and twisting can help to release trapped gas from the digestion process. I would ask for advice from the doctor about participating in such exercises, though.

    It may also be worthwhile speaking to a physiotherapist.

    Good luck!
