Non-Hirschsprung Megacolon

Non-Hirschsprung Megacolon

Your colon is another name for your large bowel. A megacolon is a condition in which your colon becomes bigger and wider. Gas and stool may slow down or stop moving through this part of your bowel. They may build up in the bowel and you may have problems having a bowel movement. The swelling and buildup of germs and gas may have a toxic effect on your whole body. Megacolon is a serious condition and may lead to death if not treated and corrected.
