Treatment depends on the degree and location of the obstruction. In mild cases, fasting may be sufficient; this is done in hospital with IV "drip" hydration and close monitoring. In severe cases, a tube may need to be inserted via the nose or mouth, into the stomach to relieve pressure and pain. If the obstruction does not improve or worsens, surgery may be needed.
